I'm Impressed

Last night, one of our local stations ran a story on an 89 year old lady who knits. Not unusual, but, she is blind. She has been since 18. Simply amazing. She has a care giver who comes in and translates the patterns to braile and makes sure her knitting looks as it should.

Now, I have to admit, when I am going round and round in my knitting, I sometimes, close my eyes. Why? I want to make sure that I could in the dark, if need be, or also, what would happen if my eye sight would go, could I still enjoy my knitting? I can. How intricate could I do? Not so sure.

Her story is just amazing. Simply amazing. And I'm Impressed, as was one of my sons. Simply put - amazing.

I watched that too and was so impressed not only with her knitting ability but even more with her attitude toward life.
