crochet squares Nearly Blind Woman Sees Her Crochet Go To Good Cause

Terra Taylor is a 39-year-old SAHM who crochets hats for some side income but also donates her crochet to cancer patients. While this is noble, many crocheters wouldn’t find it surprising. A lot of women crochet. A lot of women these days are starting to sell their crochet. And many people donate their crochet to cancer patients and others in need. But what if I told you that this young grandmother of three is nearly blind?

Werkelijk, in all honestly, I no longer find this surprising. I can’t imagine figuring out how to crochet if I couldn’t see but I’ve heard enough stories in the past year to know that it’s actually not so rare. I interviewed one woman for my book on the health benefits of crochet who goes through periodic temporary blindness because of an as-yet-undiagnosed condition and she uses crochet to stay calm and get through those difficult periods. In addition to the stories I’ve personally been told, I’ve researched this topic and reported on stories about the 92-year-old nearly blind crocheter and the blind crocheter who crafts for her siblings.

So no, Taylor’s story doesn’t surprise me anymore but that doesn’t mean that I find it any less inspiring. I think that one of the hallmarks of an amazing person is that they go through something difficult and find a way through it to the other side. Ze blijven optimistisch en hoopvol en het geven en open ondanks de moeilijkheden die zij zelf getuige zijn geweest. En Taylor's verhaal is een van die verhalen.

Het Noordereiland Gazette meldt dat deze vrouw verloor haar gezichtsvermogen in een oog na wat zij noemen “een bizar ongeluk” jaar geleden. Ze onlangs ook verloren meeste gezichtsvermogen in haar rechteroog bleek te worden veroorzaakt door een ziekte vergelijkbaar maculadegeneratie (de vergrijzing van de oogaandoening die veel mensen veel ouder dan haar invloed). Ze heeft een beetje visie vertrokken, maar het is beperkt en mistig en ik denk dat ze doet het grootste deel van haar haak door te voelen in plaats van het zien van het. The article does mention that she has switched to thicker yarn and larger hooks to accommodate the difficulties of crocheting without eyesight.

Taylor started off selling her crochet hats and other crochet items. Hierdoor, someone asked her if she would be willing to make a few things and she later learned that those items were made for people going through chemo treatment. She said she didn’t feel right about taking money for that and decided that it was time to start donating chemo caps. She also mentioned that she has a lot of yarn and would love to encourage others to come over and crochet for chemo patients with her. How generous!
