Prolific knitter Ed Moseley, a resident at a care home in Georgia, has created hundreds of winter hats and donated them to babies at a hospital in Atlanta.

The grandfather, who is undergoing chemotherapy cancer treatment, said that learning the skill was relatively “easy”.

“I prevailed on my daughter to get a kit …  it comes with the right size loom and the right tools to help you knit one,” he told ABC News.

“I just followed the instructions. It was easy. Somehow I had never knitted and I always associated knitting with a bunch of needles but this looked pretty doable for me.”

He added: “I went through two or three before I came out with a good finished product.”

Staff at Northside Hospital said the donations were “wonderful gifts” for the children.

Dogwood Forest Assisted Living said: “Mr Moseley continues to be an inspiration to folks across the country! We’re so proud ...”

Meanwhile, an elderly couple have also been praised for stopping to help this young man at a train station.

And this teenager's kind act for a scared elderly woman has also won internet hearts.
