Daily WOW: Old man knits for preemies

Inside Edition - Fair Use via Youtube

The Daily Catch - published on 11/22/16

Ed Moseley is a retired engineer living at an assisted living facility and he had never tried knitting in his life. When the facility told their residents about an initiative to knit caps for premature babies, he decided that it’s never too late to learn a new craft.

When he started no one could have guessed that he would have knit so many!

Moseley and others then made all different kinds of caps and more than 350 were delivered to a hospital last week. He said he plans to keep making them. “I’ve never knitted in my life,” Moseley told Inside Edition. “Corporate said it’s a nice project for keeping the old people out of trouble.” He picked it up quickly after his daughter brought him a looming kit and instructions. His first homemade cap took three hours or more, he said, but he’s now sliced that number to 90 minutes.

Cheers to the residents at Dogwood Forest Assisted Living for their acts of mercy. We’re thankful for kind souls like you.
