As a wedding day rapidly approaches I have dedicated myself exclusively to the Twinings Shawl that I promised the mother-of-the-groom. Two repeats remain to be knit followed by grafting two halves together. I hope to be blocking this shawl on Friday with a delivery to my friend on Sunday.
For the past four months I have been attempting to get a good fit with my contacts. My eleventh pair is now simmering in cleaning solution waiting for another day of wear, and hopefully adjustment. This has been a frustrating journey and I am beginning to think that my poor pea brain can’t handle having one eye for distance vision and the other for close up vision. I have high hopes for this simmering pair of contacts. Have any of you have been successful with the mono vision soft lenses? Should I give up and get contacts for distance and wear granny glasses for reading and knitting? Should I give up altogether and wear bifocal glasses? Should I continue to persevere and hope my brain adjusts?
If you haven’t heard of the Nook it is an electronic reader just released by Barnes and Noble. It can do several things that the Kindle can’t do. It is pretty cool and I’m devouring books. The Nook can also side load PDF files and I will most definitely be putting Knitting patterns on it. How cool is that?
So……what do YOU think I should name my Nook?
