I've been having a bit of trouble with my eyesight lately. It was interfering with a few of my favorite things like knitting, reading and blogging - no big surprises there. I looked upon this issue as an
excuse opportunity to start a brand new collection. Some women collect shoes, some purses (and there's nothing wrong with doing both). Me, I'm going to try reading glasses. It's a pretty harmless thing to collect, cheaper than a good shoe or purse and more limited in quantity than my yarn stash!
It's not as easy as it sounds. There are many many boring reading glasses available in your local drug store - those are not for me! But you never know where you will find the perfect pair. I'd love to tell you I'm browsing chi-chi boutiques but this snazzy red pair is from my local car wash. The vigilant shopper is rewarded with great finds. :)
I like that I can be much more daring in my glasses collection than I ever would in my wardrobe. I think a pair to match every knitting project is an admirable goal don't you?!
Thanks to CIndi for recommending ICU Eyewear (get it?). They actually make the red glasses above and sell lots of sets with matching glasses and case. Not sure why I find that appealing but I definitely do.
She is, however, feeding my addiction. I already ordered a pair - brightly striped sun-reading glasses. Who knew there were such things. Now I can knit outside in the sun. Summer here I come!
