    What a wonderfully inspiring post. Bonny Glisker’s involvement and gift of time and talent is a treasure for the ladies she teaches and for the rest of us to learn. Many thanks to Lion Brand for making the studio available to these wonderful ladies.

    Thanks – this was a great article and I will be checking on the braille tape measure. I have been legally blind since birth and “blind” for about 15 years and knitting and crocheting for at least 35 years. I am posting this info link to a blog that has a lot of blind knitters and crocheter at yahoo. It is always nice to see this type of accomplishment. Way to go Mary!

    Im totally blind I live in Canada. i have a computer with speech program. I’ve been researching web sites on the internet. I’m a beginner knitter. I knit scarves. I wanted to knit slippers. With slippers, I was doing pearing as well as knitting. I kept making mistakes. I go to a knitting group. I’ve been encouraged to just do plain knitting for a while. I want to try the slippers again some day. I just realize I just need more practice with just plain knitting. I have just been looking for on line support with my knitting. I am an indipendent knitter, but, I just like on line support. I found this blog and decided to leave a comment I guess I’m looking for on line knitting communies. I’m even interested in on line knitting classes. it took me a while to find a good web site for visually impaired knitters. I am open to suggestions bye for now

      Hi, I think that it is great that you like to knit. I am hoping to be able to learn to teach others to knit, including those that are visually impaired/blind. Your input would be appreciated greatly.
