I just got these lovely stitch markers in the mail today, and had to share! I saw an ad in one of the knitting magazines (forget which one… I grabbed everything off the magazine rack last week!) for Debra’s Garden, and I just had to order right away! I do love the idea of having jewels for my knitting! But alas, I don’t have the eyes for beading. So, I had to get these right away. I think I am in love!

Speaking of eyes, I’m adjusting this week to my first pair of bifocals (yuck, I’m getting older!) and while these glasses are horrible for looking at the computer, I can see all sorts of things in my knitting that I was missing before. Like, for example, I can read the teeny tiny print on the cables of my Addi Turbos… and I can see a whole new dimension in my stitches that I was missing before. I think guage will be a lot easier to count now, as I can actually see each stitch very clearly. But I do have to take these glasses back, as I can’t read the computer much at all, and they forgot to put in my sun-darkening lenses! Argh. Why can’t anything just be easy?

Hey, at least it is the meteorological beginning of Spring, even if I am freezing my a** off and the northeast got measureable snow. Luckily I got none of that white stuff, but it was quite dreary nonetheless. I’m counting the days til Spring gets here for real. In the meantime, happy knitting!
