I’ve never run out of yarn…till yesterday. I was modifying the size of the Shetland Triangle shawl–you know, subbing yarn and making it bigger. I borrowed the book from the library so my calculations on repeats I thought I could get out of the yardage was done a while ago and I can’t find the first page of my copy–just the chart. The second ball of Nature Spun fingering seemed to be going a long way. I considered throwing a lifeline in but decided to fly by the seat of my pants. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. I asked Kevin if he thought I should rip back or just buy another ball. Nearly wrote "bawl". He said buy another ball. I will hit the yarn–nearly typed "yearn" shop after. I don’t anticipate getting a second ball to be a problem. I am 4 rows and a cast off away.
We have also had a first with Owen. His teacher is quitting. This is the first time we have lost a teacher mid-year. He has lost at least an assistant a year and a few changes in home staff but this is the first school teacher. I can’t say I feel too badly about it. This was her first year teaching and they are a challenging group. I don’t think Owen cared for her all that well. One of the assistants will be taking over and the coordinator having more input. That’s fine by me. The assistant is a man. Always novel and fun in the special education dept. Sadly, Owen doesn’t care for him these days but we can brush up on reinforcement, I think. And the coordinator really knows her stuff.
Thanks for the input on the meeting. I have the name of a good lawyer. I am in contact with a special ed teacher who is also a parent of a young man with autism. And the resource room teacher and I are going to work on writing a grant for Fast Forword.
Better get to the shop.
