This Awesome 104-Year-Old Lady Wonderfully Yarn-Bombed Her Home Town


When you think about someone at the age of 104, you probably imagine them to be pretty frail and unable to do much. However, Scottish grandma to 6 and great-grandma to 14, Grace Brett is here to prove people wrong! She's the oldest member of 'Souter Stormers', a secretive group that recently yarn-bombed her hometown of Selkirk, Scotland for the 'YES Arts Festival'. If you're not aware of yarn-bombing, it is the act of decorating objects around an area with knitting or crochet. Grace has been an almost life-long knitter and crocheter, having always created blankets and shawls for all the babies in the family. Talking about this project, Grace said…

"I thought it was a really good idea to decorate the town and enjoyed having my crochet included. I liked seeing my work showing with everyone else and thought the town looked lovely."
