Back in August I published the story of Joe, a disabled veteran who crochets for charity to help him through PTSD and other health issues. At the time, he was in need of yarn, and several of you stepped up and sent donations his way so that he could continue to heal himself and others through crochet. I thought that you might like an update about what he’s been doing since then.
