According to The Columbus Dispatch, inmates at a prison in Ohio are making crochet sleeping mats for the homeless. These crochet mats are made out of plarn or plastic yarn (yarn made from plastic bags). "About a dozen residents on a prison unit where women get help preparing to re-enter society work on the 6-by-4 foot crocheted mats. Each mat requires 600 to 900 bags." It's amazing how the most unsuspected of people can learn how to crochet. Some inmates even make crochet receiving blankets for infants or foster care children.
