Your grandmother still has what it takes! That is a beautiful sweater. Tell her a lot of fellow knitters around the world have looked at her sweater and think it is great. I love the shape, how it comes to a vee in the front with the ribbing and the other design.

I know even totally blind people knit. It must require a lot of paying attention. :-)

That is super beautiful!! WIsh my grandmother was still with us but she gave me the impetus to knit so I guess she really still is. (Big smile with small tear.)

Wow I aspire to knit something as beautiful as that!
One of the people who inspired me to knit was a lady I saw here on our news who had just had her sight restored after 30 years and she was in hospital knitting on tiny needles and at great speed. I thought 'if she can do it, so can I'.
OTN Basic Black Cardigan (my 1st with pieces) for me!

Thanks for the wonderful compliments! She was all smiles when I told her everyone loved it. If anyone wants the pattern, its one that she invented,so I can type it up and send it to you.
