When I’m An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple…

So I’m feeling much better today and this morning we decided to head out to the eye glass shop and pick up my new glasses. They are purple. If you are familiar with the poem “Warning” by Jenny Joseph you will know the ending – which I’ve decided to take to heart – “But maybe I ought to practice a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised when suddenly I am old and start to wear purple.”

They are fun and funky and I think suit me just fine. Excuse my scrubbed face, unruly hair and brows that are about to grow together – this week I’ll work on those. new-glasses-4-28-2007-12-31-27-pm.JPG

I also finished up the heel on the Monsoon sock – onto the leg. Yeah. My only complaint so far is that the needles I ordered from Knitpicks in 0 seem to be shedding and leaving little silver flakes on my hands. Bummer, eh?

  • love the glasses! and it’s wonderful to put a face to the name πŸ™‚
    Glad you are feeling better now – allergies are stink-o-la

  • Nice glasses πŸ™‚
    Have you contacted KP about the needles? I’ve not encountered anyone with that complaint yet, so you might have a faulty set!!!
    Mine start to tarnish, but that’s pretty normal for me LOL. You should have seen my embroidery needles πŸ™‚

    Cheers Eva

  • Love the glasses! That’s the first I’ve heard of knitpicks needles flaking. I have a set but I’ve never used them.

  • Your socks are looking great. I really like the color pooling on your socks a better then the more boring stripes on mine!

    Your new glasses lookes very nice.
