But there was only one problem, or so it seemed. Moseley who lives at the Acworth residence didn't know how to knit. But with the support of family, Moseley taught himself how to knit using a loom kit. Since then, he's knitted over 50 preemie caps in a rainbow of colors. He's also inspired others to learn to knit including other residents and children at his granddaughter's school (where his granddaughter is a teacher). Before long, people were dropping off completed knitted caps to Moseley's room and dropping off balls of yarn for him to knit. Staff at the residence also knitted caps, and were also encouraging, Moseley said.
“When they started this project a few months back, I told my daughter about it and I said, ‘How can I knit? what do I need to do?’ and bless her heart, she went to Jo-Anns [Fabrics] and got a kit, yarn and instruction kit for me. So I started slowly and learned it just takes patience,’” he said.
