Thanks to an 86-year-old man, over 300 premature babies in the NICU at Northside Hospital in Atlanta are a little cozier. Ed Moseley, a resident at Dogwood Forest Assisted Living in Acworth, Georgia, taught himself to knit so he could make warm hats to donate to the babies. How amazing is that?
Moseley, who knit the caps in response to his living community’s challenge to knit as many hats as possible for the hospital, told ABC News how he did it pretty easily:
“I prevailed on my daughter to get a kit, and it comes with the right size loom and the right tools to help you knit one. I just followed the instructions. It was easy. Somehow I had never knitted, and I always associated knitting with a bunch of needles but this looked pretty doable for me. I went through two or three before I came out with a good finished product.”
