With the appointments and the heat, I am progressing nicely on this hat. I have about an inch to finish and then the crown. It changed from a beanie to a hat with a nice flap for cold weather. So I am now using from the second ball.
For those of you wondering. The hearing aid looks like this. The technician takes a mold of the ear to have the plastic piece made to fit. This is to solve the problem of it falling out and getting lost. He did wear it today and life was better.
