That's not knitting

There's a very nice story here about the women who make blankets for foster kids, but don't pay attention to the knitting references because everything on display is sewn. Maybe the woman who began the program was knitting when the idea came to her, but these blankets aren't made with knits and purls, despite what the piece says.

The video is more informative than the text below it, but the written piece makes the most egregious errors in regard to the type of crafting involved. Call it the difference between television and print, if you will, but the newspaper article identifies what's being done as sewing.

To my central Ohio readers who know their way around sewing machines, this organization is in the area and might be worth looking into.

I just ran across the leaflet I got from them at the 4th of July parade this weekend. They take knitted and crocheted and sewn blankets. I need to make something for them one of these days. Especially since I chased down the lady handing out the leaflets at the parade to get one. ;)
