- As a lifelong crocheter, Jean Kjeldahl of Brooklyn Park knows how to spin a good yarn. "I've done slippers, boots, socks, mittens, fingerless mittens - you name it I can do it," said Kjeldahl. But Kjeldahl is seeing red these days about the situation many young adults, who used to be in foster care, face during the holidays. "When those kids turn 18 they are out and on their own,” she said. “Where do they go for Christmas? Where do they go for Thanksgiving? They are not connected to anyone."
