New Glasses

But first, let me do a WIP update, since it's been about 3 weeks since I've posted one. I'm going to try something different this time.  I'm going to bump the ones I actually worked on to the top of the list.  Maybe I won't lose you so quickly then. 

1.  Charity Scarf:  I've been working on this one some.

2.  Arwen Wrap:  and I worked a bit on this one, too.

3.  The 2010 Anniversary Mystery Shawl.  I did a few rounds on this. 

4.  2011 Anniversary Mystery Shawl.  But they all got set aside to finish up this one.  I've finally picked it back up, and made it a priority.  I finished chart 4 and have started chart 5.  There aren't that many rows left, but they are sooo long at this point that I only get a couple of rows a day finished.

5. Conwy sock:  No progress this week

6. Traveling Roses Scarf: No progress this week.

7. Garter Rib Scarf: No progress.

8. Fruit Of The Vine  scarf: Ditto.

9. Orkney Pi Shawl:  No progress

10.  Leper bandage: This is my new waiting project.  When I'm on my excruciatingly slow desktop and I'm waiting 20 years for a page to load, I pick it up and knit a row or two. 

11 & 12. The two sock yarn blankies. No new squares this week.

I took half a day off yesterday to go to the eye doctor.  He said my prescription hasn't changed, but he did give me a slightly stronger bifocal spot.  He said most people will just pull their glasses off to read, but I need to be able to see my lace and the TV at the same time.  And besides, it's been 2 1/2 years since I've gotten new glasses anyway, so might as well get ones that I can see through. 

I was disappointed, as usual, in the frame styles.  Most are tiny little coke bottle cap sized frames, and I can't stand them.  I've been hoping that bigger frames will come back into style, but so far, no luck.  I'm stuck peering through peephole sized lenses for a little while longer.

Well, somehow I thought I'd have more to say about that...

I love taking half days off--really even more than whole days.  There's just something about slinging my tool bag over my shoulder and walking out at lunch time.  I really ought to do that more often.

I always love your WIP. They look so soft and lacy.

Oh I dunno, whole days off are pretty good too: I took Tuesday off this week for a mid-morning dental appt, and took the rest of the day off as well for a "mental health day" to get my taxes done (*groan*) and run a few errands. Dental & Mental, LOL. Plus a mid-week break like that makes the rest of the week go by faster ;)

Thanks, Lou.

Yeah, whole days off are nice, but there's just something about walking out in the middle of the day, then going home and doing nothing for the rest of it.
