The Blind Knitter

I take the bus to and from work, and on occasion there is a blind woman who rides also. Well, the other day, as I was just observing the people, I glanced at the blind lady and she pulled out… her knitting! She was making an afghan, and it was beautiful!! Eyelets, ribs, and a lot of stitches I did not recognize. I was just in awe of her. I don’t know how she keeps track of what she is doing, but man… she was really zipping through those stitches. Never again will I look at a pattern and think “That looks too hard”. :notworthy:

:slight_smile:

wow, that’s really something. You should take that opportunity to go up to her and ask her about her knitting! My guess is that you’ll make a new friend and perhaps learn some things in the process.

Wow, that’s so cool!! :cheering:

:oops: now I feel bad I can’t do a simple pair of socks…

What an amazing lady! :notworthy:
Maybe next time you should go up to her and chat with her about knitting! You and her might become good friends! :teehee:

:thud: That’s amazing to be able to do it by feel!

That is so amazing!

:clink:

~WOW~!!

THAT is very encouraging… so IF we lose our sense of sight, hearing, memory and taste…
WE CAN STILL KNIT PEACEFULLY IN OUR OWN LIL’ WORLD~!! :notworthy: :cheering: :roflhard: :roflhard:

oh, wow! what a heartwarming story! thanks for sharing it.

One of the ladies in my SNB has a friend who is 92–practically blind and crochets by feel. She takes her once a month to the LYS to help her pick out yarn!

Wow! That’s inspiring. I want to meet her.
