These are my lovely old glasses.

Today I went to the optometrist and I am only a bit more blind than before, but I have developed astigmatism…could this be from eye-strain? Eye-strain, that is, from staring at Ravelry and knitting all day?? They did the thing with drops and dilated my eyes and my eyes were so hugely dilated, and so the brightness was killer, of course, resulting in a “I’m a stoner, man,” kind of squint. So
that’s what I looked like freshman year of college…

anyway…I have no cataracts. And I picked out super cute glasses that are like the ones I have now, but these are black and white as opposed to teal and green.

On the knitting front: I’ve begun a baby-shower gift for my cousin’s wife–due in January. It’s the most darling baby-bunting and I’m mostly done. These are the two fron
t sides, to be joined later, and there will be a zipper:

It’s okay–no mistakes I’ve seen yet. I guess it’a a vintage pattern…from the 70’s. But I found it online, and I would link it if I remembered it. But I don’t.
