From a Knitter in Italy, One Story of Hope

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the earthquake in Italy.  Here is the story of a 98 year old woman survived, apparently with the help of her knitting.

“Another of those rescued today was Maria D’Antuono, 98, who said that she had spent 30 hours knitting as she waited to be freed from her ruined home. “I worked, I knitted,” said Mrs D’Antuono, from the village of Tempera, close to L’Aquila. The redoubtable nonagenarian told rescuers that she was in good health when she was found this morning.”
