People say that you are never too old to learn new things. Grandpa Ed Moseley is living proof of that. Ed Moseley was undergoing chemotherapy when he became aware that over 2000 prematurely born infants are taken care of in his hospital each year. Without knowing how to knit,
he started made warm hats for these newborns. “How can I knit? What do I need to do?” He asked his daughter. “Bless her heart, she went… and got a kit, yard and instruction kit for me. So I started slowly and learned, it just takes patience.”
Moseley began knitting hats while watching TV, and he began to inspire other residents at the Dogwood Forest Assisted Living Community to take part in the cause. Ed himself made over 55 hats, and began teaching classes on how to knit the warm little hats of love to other residents.
Mosley’s inspiration caused residents to help make another 300 more hats, and they were able to donate over 350 hats to the hospital for National Preemie Awareness Day. Moseley plans to continue this great work and knit 30 tiny hats for baby care every month.
