Using what I have: Crochet pouch necklace


Three years ago, when I was visiting my sister, she made me this crochet pouch necklace.  It was intended to hold a pretty polished stone.

For the last few weeks, I've needed to use eye drops (for anterior uveitis).  Now, I am horribly forgetful.  If I did not have the eyedrops in my hand, I would forget to put them in.  Every hour wasn't so bad, but every two hours, or every three hours, I cannot remember to do it.

So I put the little eyedrop bottle into the pouch and tied it closed.  It is perfect!  It swings from my neck as I go about my day, getting in my way just enough to remind me.  Yes, I look like a dork.  But my eye is getting better.
