Just in case you hadn't noticed somebody is growing. Growing so big that he needed a new walker. I met with the equipment rep at Physical Therapy a few weeks back and we discussed many options. The one she suggested I was not happy with and frankly I should have stuck to my guns because I just know it is not going to be right for him. I also needed to order a different, extra walker for school and she sent me a quote that was sky high. So I went online and found an even better one. Little Buddy is just in the middle of this walker as far as fit goes, he has about four more inches to grow and it won't work anymore. Yet it is light weight and the, "ride is really smooth!" according to my little guy. He loves it, it doesn't squeak, it maneuvers beautifully and it was not expensive at all. I will be meeting with the rep and PT again on Tuesday to discuss why the huge walker was suggested, return it and get them to order something more appropriate. We will be keeping this one for home. I know it is all about making money, but still you should have the children's least restrictive option available because it is what will work best.
My last Christmas present is done. This was my car crochet project. When a child from work would cancel I would sit in my car and crochet a few rows here and there. Eventually it got long enough and here we are with a finished scarf. I made this with a size H hook and the remaining skein of the Entice yarn made for Silver Threads and Golden Needles yarn shop in Franklin, NC. Remember I bought it a few years ago on a visit there and ended up making the East End sweater with it earlier this year. So I am guessing 300 yards of yarn used for this pattern. The funny thing is I made a very rookie mistake making this scarf. I started off with 7 treble crochet clusters and ended up with 7 double crochet clusters. I didn't even realize I had switched until it was completed. I am glad that it isn't too noticeable and frankly I put a lot of work into it so it is being given as a gift even if I should keep it or donate it.
After a very long and challenging week at work I came home to find this at my front door. It is from a far away friend that I adore. It made my day, thank you so much for thinking about me my dear, dear friend.
Okay, I am out of here, Little B and I have homework to get done.
