I got some great comments on my earlier Cary Grant knitting blog post that suggested I highlight one of the great professional football players, Rosey Grier. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Rosey, he was three times All Pro and played for both the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Rams. Grier was also apart of the “Fearsome Foursome” which is one of the greatest defensive lines in the sport’s history.
Not only is he an athlete, he is known for his needlepoint and has always been associated with that image. Rosey even wrote a book call Rosey Grier’s Needlepoint for Men which consists of projects which are all geared toward men. Although he doesn’t knit or crochet this shows how even a professional football player can be involved in needlecraft. I hope you all find this inspiring.
