Dorthea Brown was born in 1915. That makes her 104 years young today.

The Lewiston, Maine, woman hosts a “sit and knit” night on Thursday evenings when she stays up late and knits with friends, according to Newscentermaine.com.

Apparently, her mother taught her to knit when she was just 4 years old, so Dorthea has lots of experience in knitting!

Each Thursday night, friends gather in Dorthea’s home for a “Sit and Knit,” the news stsation reported Many friends, family, and neighbors help Dorthea do things like take her trash, give her rides to church and check on her all the time.

The tie that binds them all is knitting, according to newscentermaine.com.

It seems that Dottie’s hobby has given her a sense of purpose and helped her keep friends which adds greatly to her quality of life.

Perhaps it’s time I learned how to knit. Keep going, Dottie!
