LAS VEGAS - A Las Vegas woman is using her love of knitting to provide comfort for those who need it.
“When my husband died, I got to thinking. I can't sit here by myself, so I went to doing something for somebody else,” Leora Senior said.
That was 18 years ago. For the past two decades, Senior turned a hobby into an activity that benefits others.
“It relaxes me,” she said.
She volunteers her time at the West Flamingo Senior Center, teaching knitting and crochet classes.
“I feel, this way, if I am doing it at my age, maybe somebody else can say, ‘I can do that,'” she said.
8 News NOW received some lovely letters from women who praise Senior's many good deeds. The letters also mention that Senior is on a limited income, but that doesn't stop her from buying all the yarn and materials to benefit others.
