I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Rest In Peace, Margaret.

If any of you are Detroit Red Wings Fans, you may have at one time or another seen The Knitting Lady in the stands....at least that is what I always called her. Well, The Knitting Lady was named Margaret, and the television announcer just reported that Margaret passed away.
Seeing Margaret there, knitting away, always made me smile.
I'll miss her.

Well, I am not familiar wtih Margaret, but what was her fame (other than your knitting name) that the announcer would say something regarding her death? Maybe the fact that she was ALWAYS there?....in the same seat?...or something?

When Margaret was at the game the camera man would always find her and the announcers would chuckle at her.....
Her claim to fame was simply that she was there, needles and yarn in hand, working away while the game went on. I think she is (was) as much of a fixture there as Mo' Cheese....The guy who dances to the song The Curley Shuffle.
Guess you'd have to be a fan.
