Hey, Aunty Lene, it's not ALLL about knitting today!

I'm going to speak our language.

I got new frames for my glasses yesterday. Well, I don't actually have them, but they are on their way. I did end up getting Prada again; it was all some kind of miracle that went like this....

The reason I can't see is because my vision has improved (in the long range that is, but somewhat worsened in the reading range). I cannot have a narrow frame because I need progressives (which I love, by the way!). I couldn't find a darned thing that was wide enough and I was about to give up when Dida found a super great pair of black Pradas (PR17G) that have a lilac interior and arm. Ya baby! They are big enough and funky enough, and I am happy. I was sad about having to give up the ones I have now, but I'll put them away in case my vision craps out again.

Turns out we are having unexpected company today, so the agenda just took an abrupt turn. Back to the drawing board..

(Just a little knitting: The Bison Heartland Lace shawl is blocked to a 6' wingspan. It is very beautiful and the detail and stitch definition is amazing. I'm so happy.)

Can't wait to see your new glasses. I love my progressives too. Hope you are having a good weekend.
