elderly crochet 91 Year Old Hooker Wins Prize

Ruth W. Umberger startede ikke hækle indtil hendes tresserne, men på 91 år, hun har stadig omkring tredive års krog under hendes bælte. Hendes indsats har ikke gået til spilde i betragtning af at hun netop vundet en Virginia State Fair pris for hendes hæklede afghanere.

The Virginia State Fair has offered crafting awards for years. Men, this year was the first year that they had a seniors category for crafters over the age of 80. That’s the category that Umberger won.

Umberger says that she never had any interest in knitting but she did learn to crochet from her sister. As she’s gotten older and her health has started to fail, she’s had to spend more time sitting down and so her crochet time has grown and grown. She had more than 100 crochet afghans to choose from for her submission to the fair and of course that doesn’t include the many that she’s given away as gifts over the years.

The crochet afghan that ultimately got entered and won the prize is a blanket of square motifs but they aren’t granny squares. With a diamond in the center offset but red, pink and beige stitches, this blanket really pops!
