91-Hooker anni vince il premio

Ruth W. Impossibile avviare Umberger non uncinetto fino ai suoi sessantanni ma allo 91 anni di età ancora ha circa trent'anni di aggancio sotto la sua cintura. Il suo impegno non sia andata sprecata considerando che ha appena vinto un premio Virginia State Fair per suoi afgani all'uncinetto.

The Virginia State Fair has offered crafting awards for years. Tuttavia, 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!
