"Well it's not easy to grow old. But, I find that knitting fills in the void, and it's useful. It's an outlet for me and it's something that helps people." -Virginia Carmichael, a 100-year-old knitter, has been making baby sweaters and blankets for newborns in need for many years.

So much to learn from and share as a result of interacting with centenarians ...indeed, there's something extra special in seeing the wrinkled and old-age spotted hands of Virginia Carmichael touch the unmarred smoothness of infancy and newness on the face of one of the babies she has lovingly knitted a sweater for. And it is true that the sweater provides a warmth and comfort for the infant; but, just as true and equally as important, creating the little yarned cloaks provide a social wellness, emotional wellness, and spiritual wellness that are nothing less than fuel for health at any age, especially, it would seem for centenarians
