Very inspiring story - thank you for sharing it with us.
If you haven't had a chance, please check out Humans of Ravelry today featuring my sister. Dr. Lea, also know in knitting circles as Knitdoc. The article is very interesting and also features one of her great passions, the Green Sweater project which is described in some detail in the article. I am so proud of her and just had to share with my KP friends.
