A Craftster Before His Time

Rosey Grier was a 6′ 5″ 300 pound NFL player in the 1970s whose favorite hobby was needlepoint… and he wasn’t afraid to admit it! He even wrote a book entitled “Rosey Grier’s Needlepoint for Men.” Someone out there with a copy of this book was nice enough to scan some pages into Flickr and you can see them all here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/69799427@N00/sets/491625/

Ahhh. Makes my heart swell!

    A 300lb football player taught me to crochet in college, I have such a soft spot for big men who craft.
