I read the LIW books when I was younger, and now I'm inspired to read them again. I never knew that Mary could knit even with her blindness. Speaking of strong women, I just thought of Helen Keller and her triumphs over her disabilities. I would love to do more research about her and her fascinating life. I wonder if she knit as well, since knitting was an everyday reality to women back then. I feel so fortunate that we can knit for pleasure instead of neccesity in these times. Blessings on our past sisters for their strength and creativity; truly we owe them our gratitude.
