I have seen the future, and it is blurry...
|The Gambler and I went to have our eyes checked last week; part of the exam involved me having my pupils dilated. Afterwards, I had 2 choices - if I had my glasses on, everything close was blurry, and everything far was clear, and if I took my glasses off, everything far was blurry and everything close was clear. This is what I have to look forward to as I get older.|
Sigh - one of the joys of being nearsighted - you are guaranteed to need bifocals at some point.
But I did order some funky new frames, and at least I can revel in the fact that I still have a half decent focal point (although I have gotten into the habit of looking underneath my glasses to see my knitting...)
Things are going swimmingly with my Games That Shall Not Be Named Knitting Project:
This is after the second pattern repeat. As of last night, I was part way through the 6th pattern repeat. I'm very happy with how the 2 colourways are working together - the above (flash) photo kind of washes the colour out.
This is a better representation(complete with cat hair):
I used to know enough calculus to be able to calculate the net number of stitches after each pattern repeat, but that was back in the late 1980's. All those credit hours - gone. So I am weighing the yarn and project to come up with an estimation of the %age of the shawl I have knit thus far. At the last weighing, I had used up about 17% of the yarn. I still have alot of knitting ahead! At least I've memorized the stitch pattern and don't need to refer to the book anymore.
