A conversation got me looking for resources on knitting while blind, so I thought other folks would enjoy these.
Resources for blind knitting:
Kudos to Lionheart, a yarn company that offers patterns in large print and Braille, and they also carry a how-to book on learning to knit while blind (written by a blind knitter).

Sadly I could not find "learn how to knit" instructions for blind people online, but at least those exist in various formats.
