86-Year-Old Man Teaches Himself to Knit Hats, Then Donates Over 300 To Preemies

If there’s one thing I know, that is that one should never stop learning. We all have so much to learn throughout life, and the benefits of doing so are tremendous. Not only does it help to expend your horizon and find out more about the world, it also helps you learn more about yourself. Also, it gives you purpose.
At 86-years-old, Ed Moseley picked up a new hobby: knitting. That in itself is pretty extraordinary, but the reason why he started taking an interest in this hobby in the first place is even more amazing.
You see, Ed, a retired engineer, decided to start learning this skill after a nearby hospital in Atlanta reached out to his assisted living home asking people if they were willing to donate their time and skills to help premature babies born in the hospital. The purpose was to knit as many hats for the babies as possible.
So Moseley went ahead and picked up a pair of needles for the first time ever in his life, and managed to knit no less than 55 of the 300 hats they ended up donating.
He is definitely an inspiration, isn’t he?
