Because of spam comments and being generally uninspired, I've been avoiding reviewing, approving, and responding to comments on this blog. I've just caught up and see that my father and his wife have both made a comment or two! Cool!


I think part of the reason I've been uninspired and avoiding crocheting lately (since around the end of June!) is frustration with my eye glasses. While I don't need reading glasses (yet!), I do need glasses to see far away (I'm nearsighted).

I wear glasses while crocheting because I'm also watching TV. But close-up objects (crochet hook and yarn, fingernails, refill number on a prescription bottle, etc.) aren't as easy to see as they once were. It's much more comfortable (less blurry) to just take off my glasses when I need to read a prescription bottle or file my nails. I remember several times in June removing my glasses in frustration while working on the Easy Breezy Vest (finished) and Easy Breezy Cardigan (abandoned).

Well, the solution arrived Saturday afternoon! A new pair of eye glasses for far away and close-up seeing! Now I can more comfortable crochet and watch TV at the same time! And, It surprised me the new glasses were so easy to get used to!


I started a new crochet project Saturday night. It is the Cream Cotton Shrug pattern on Diane Langan's free pattern page. Instead of using cotton yarn, I'm using the purple Microspun I was going to use for the Easy Breezy Cardigan I gave up on in June. I'm also making it larger than the pattern describes by using a K hook and 11 squares around the bottom.


I gave the Julianna cardigan to Elizabeth last week - it fit her nicely and she loved it!


We started watching Season 1 of The Shield on DVD. Wow! It's taken us by surprise quite a bit. A tough guy cop with a soft side... and a crooked side.
