I hope I'm posting this correctly. The Interlacements team donates yarn & teaches knitting to women inmates as an skill to give them "meaningful work" when they leave prison. If there's work out there knitting, then show me the money!

That's a good article! The woman who said she is knitting to give her daughter a reason to admire her made me cry! :) I'm now an even bigger fan of Interlacements!

Good article, hopefully these women can keep with knitting instead of what got them there in the first place.

Hi Deon,

What a brilliant article. Although its a shame that when they get out of prison they are not helped to get a job where they can use their new found skills.

Knit in peace and harmony.
