GOOD NEWS 86-Year-Old Teaches Himself How to Knit to Make Caps for Preemies
You're never too old, right?
A man at a Georgia assisted living facility picked up a new hobby at 86 years old, all for the benefit of premature babies.
Ed Moseley, a former engineer who is battling cancer, taught himself how to knit at Dogwood Forest Assisted Living and has now made hundreds of caps for preemies to wear.

The residents were inspired to start the project after learning about World Prematurity Day.
Moseley and others then made all different kinds of caps and more than 350 were delivered to a hospital last week. He said he plans to keep making them.
“I’ve never knitted in my life,” Moseley told Inside Edition. "Corporate said it's a nice project for keeping the old people out of trouble."
He picked it up quickly after his daughter brought him a looming kit and instructions. His first homemade cap took three hours or more, he said, but he's now sliced that number to 90 minutes.
