And, as long as I was not breaking the bank, I decided to have some fun with it, too! The first pair I got at Wally-World, which is pretty standard procedure for Pretty, except that the frames were a little bolder than I usually choose. The other pair I currently love to wear is from Goggles4U. (This is not an ad, just a letting-you-know kinda thing, I promise.) I was wary of ordering something like glasses online, but it seems to have turned out just fine, at about half the cost of my store-bought pair, and I call that a win!
Oh!, and they are PURPLE! Very purple. . .so purple that I forgot how purple they were between the time I ordered and the time they arrived! But, you know what? I like 'em! You can see some photos of both frames over there on the left, and you know what else? I think I like to accessorize with my glasses. I am a Girl Who Wears Glasses, and I love it! (I didn't always, but now, I am sure that I do!)
And I love that I have glasses that I can see out of, and that I have a spare pair at the ready, just in case, because seeing is important to a knitter!
Speaking of knitting, in Knitting Knews this week, I finished a couple things! A Christmas project (no pix - keepin' it covert), technically it was project #3, but it's the 4th finished Christmas project, soooo, take that for whatever it's worth to ya!
I also finished the first of my October socks - the Dragonfly pattern - which is working up SUPER QUICK! It's just flying away on the needles! I started these just before the potluck last Saturday, and I think I will easily be done by next weekend! I love the colors of this 5th Avenue Funky Sock Yarn, even though it's acrylic. . .and I have worn acrylic socks before. . .they are not as nice as wool, truth be told, but they wear like iron, and if the Hubs should accidentally wash and dry (because he is a totally hip and happ'nin' kinda guy who is not above doing the laundry sometimes), no problem! "Acrylic Yarn - it can save your marriage. . ." lol
I also love the way variegated yarns look in an Eye of Partridge heel flap. . .Oooooh!, preeetty!
I just love to pick these up all the time. . .I am really not sure what I will do when they are done, except that I will probably cast on the November socks. . .but I don't know if I can really love a pattern/yarn-color marriage as much as I am currently loving this one. . .sigh! I suppose that I will survive, in any case. ;-P
Oh! I know what I can do next! I still need another baby girl sweater, and I happen to have this yarn. . .Sounds like a pretty nice match up to me! So, I guess my two faces and I will sign off now. Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
