I had a break from working on Chrysanthemum Fairy and decided to have a go at an easy scarf pattern that was linked on Black Sheep Wools Facebook page. I did not have the yarn they used so looked in my stash and found some King Cole Inspire in shade 932. The yarn is 35% Cotton, 30% Superwash Wool and 35% Acrylic. It has a slight slubby texture in that the yarn isn't a consistent thickness, nevertheless I have started this scarf and my progress is below.

Yesterday evening I went to my son's Parent's Evening. He is currently studying for a Level 2 in Art and Design. To say that we are over the moon would be an understatement. Tom has Asperger's Syndrome spent all his school years at a special school, two years at a specialist college and 1 year doing a learning for living course. This is the first course that he has undertaken which was his choosing and he absolutely loves it. The tutor said he was a joy to teach, there is no reason why he cannot go on next year to study the level 3 course for two years which is equivalent to A levels and she felt that potentially he could go on to University. This is such an achievement for a boy who did not speak until he was 5 1/2 years old and then his first word was Sainsburys as he was reading a signpost. We also discovered that he writes poetry. Tom says very little and when he does speak he does struggle at conveying what he wants to get across. Yet if he can write to you it is perfectly clear and in context. As you can imagine there is one very proud Mum here.
