“Longtime felter” Kate Pokorny is serious about her crocheting. So serious, in fact, she sees it as a means to a humanitarian end. With her project Yurt Alert, Pokorny wants to crochet an entire yurt, or transportable dwelling, from wool.

Yurt Alert is a challenging endeavor, and not necessarily one that will cut costs on shelters or provide feasible production. (How long does it take to crochet an entire house?) However, Yurt Alert is a supportable cause (and Pokorny’s an interesting character).
