Sadly I really don't have much knitting news to share. I am still plugging away at my second shawl. I am not knitting very much while in Tatamagouche because my parents don't have TV and that is when I do most of my knitting. So because I don't have any knitting pictures I am going to break up the post with pictures of cute animals. This is Leif, my mom's dog, and is probably the most exuberant, optimistic animal I have ever met. He is so trusting of the world that he has been known to job off of high ledges into people's arms, assuming they will catch him as he falls.
Things are going well on my placement. I am getting a lot of good experience and it is really rewarding to watch as people get better every day. At the same time though it is really frustrating when people peak in their abilities, but it is still not enough to allow them to go home. I can't help but imagine how I would feel if that was one of my parents or my grandparents, and I really share in people's grief over the loss of their independence.
