Their hearts are big...even if they're teaching crochet instead of knitting!

That truly is cool! Anything that provides someone with a useable (and legal) skill is a good thing. Go guys!

"Crocheting involves using a single hooked needle to stitch yarn into a variety of functional goods, and is not to be confused with knitting, which uses two identical needles to pull yarn through loops and is generally considered the more difficult of the two crafts."

At least they admit knitting is harder! I've never crocheted, but I've heard that knitting is harder. I think this is a wonderful article. What an amazing idea. How do you reverse poverty? This is exactly how it should be done...Kudos to these guys!

Good on those guys, its totally awsome what they're doing. And they're not only trying to give disadvantaged people a new skill they're also helpint to break the myth that men dont get involved in yarn crafts!
