Nothing can stop Renie from knitting for premature babies

At Arcare Taigum , we have a very special lady who loves giving back to those in need.

For as long as she can remember, Renie has been a keen knitter.

However, she suffered a stroke in the past year, and now knitting isn’t as easy as it used to be for her.

Rather than giving in to her stroke, she became stronger and more motivated to knit more and more beanies.

Renie has not let her stroke stopped her. Instead, she sees it as a challenge for her to overcome.

And every day, step by step, she gets out of bed, eats her breakfast and sets off to knit to add to her growing collection.

She doesn’t always make the same things as she enjoys thinking outside of the box and challenging herself with different knitting patterns and items.

These knitting activities also keep her physically and mentally active as she practices and learns various knitting styles.

The latest challenge she set for herself was to knit some beanies to be donated to premature babies at Mater Private Hospital.

And it goes without surprise that Reenie was able to complete all her beanies.

“I am very proud of myself for finishing them all. it was not easy but I did it!” Renie said.

Here at Arcare Taigum, we are all very proud of Renie and her accomplishments.

Her positive attitude to life and her motivation to get things done inspires all of us to work harder and better! Go Renie!
