I got a new pair of glasses a couple days ago. Now, glasses for me are like an extension of myself. I've had to wear glasses since I was 1 year old, and bifocals the entire time. I've had two eye surgeries, and basically had lots of eye problems my entire life. Glasses are important because they are a lot of who I am. I spend quite a lot on them. My favorite brand is Okio which is a Japanese company that handmakes each frame. My previous pair were Okios and so are these new ones. I like this pair, but I need to go back to the optometrist to adjust the ear piece. It's a bit too tight and giving me a headache. In other news, I've put together the prize I'm donating to Give a Little effort. I am donating a set of my handmade red wire hearts stitch markers, and a 17" necklace made of Rhodonite oval beads, multi-color agate, glass seed beads, and a silver toggle clasp. Give a little has already raised 45K towards Katrina Relief which is amazing and awe-inspiring! I also need some advice. This weekend I'm flying down to So.Cal for my sis-in-laws wedding (which I'm in). I need a good portable small knitting project to bring. I've never done a sock, but am thinking about it. Any suggestions for a simple pattern? Any other suggestions for a good traveling project?
