Madison Whiz Kid: Annabelle Capaccio

Madison Student Annabelle Capaccio Keeps The Ancient Art of Knitting Alive At The Country School

Name: Annabelle Capaccio

Age: 10

Grade: Fifth

School: The Country School

Accomplishments: Annabelle began learning to knit at the age of six when she attended a program at the Guilford Free Library.  Now, four years later, she has taught the knitting club at the Country School. Her specialty? How to do single finger knitting, no needles required.

Key to Awesomeness: What keeps Annabelle knitting?  The change of seasons is key.  In the winter, finger knitting keeps her hands warm as she works with wool, stitching right on her fingers.  In the summer, she switches to knitting with needles because the needles are cool to the touch.

Hi. My name is Jim Flanagan. I work at DHHS. We had a student perform 240 push ups during fitness testing. Would you be interested in printing a story? Let me know. Thanks. Jim
