You cannot imagine how much I loved this article that was called Knitting Behind Bars.
Our crocheters know how much therapy crochet provides. Lynn Zwerling, and her team of volunteers, are people I would want to meet in my lifetime after reading this article. To take a passion to give it to another is one thing. BUT… to take your passion to prison to extend it to prisoners is a whole other level that requires so much more.
As a person that has taught a lot of people in my life, I know how great I feel on being able to expand what I know to teach others but to do this is something that I would have to seriously think about.
Putting aside what has happened in the past to bring these men together in prison. I cannot applaud the Lynn and her team loud enough for making the effort and seeing the positive benefits of helping others in the form of knitting therapy. I’m not sure I could do this, just for the fear and being the personality that I am; however, it makes me appreciate the effort and time involved in this all the more remarkable.
On behalf of the entire Crochet Crowd Team, thank you for seeing a need and filling a need. This article touched our hearts beyond measure.
