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:


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!



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.
