Fuzzy

I had the pre-op appointment today for Lasik. So, that means that I can hardly see a bloody thing due to an over zealous application of dilation drops by the technician. So bad, that I couldn't knit. Once applying the drops they had me sit in a small room and watch some dull "informative" video about the procedure. "Perfect opportunity to sit and knit", I hear you say. I tried to knit. I tried, but my arms got tired of holding the knitting directly in front of my nose so that I could see the stitches. I couldn't see anything but a blurry distance with glasses and very close up without, and nothing in between.

You can tell the blurriness was bad, when control freak chef Kim, suggested that Caleb (10y) help chop the vegetables and read me the recipe for Clam Chowder. He was very helpful and it turned out lovely - we even adapted the recipe to use White Rice Flour, so that it was Gluten Free for Declan. Teamwork.

Steve just walked in the room laughing, as he saw me trying to type with my nose pressed against the glass of the computer. It's ridiculous! Although I am very excited at the prospect of not having glasses slide down my nose, non-poking of eyes while inserting contacts, and actually being able to see my hand in front of my face.

I did get some knitting done last night on the Kors Cabled Tunic. Did I mention I love this pattern and yarn? I'd like to knit on it tonight, but am certain I would screw it up with not being able to see what I was up to.

wait a minute... they put those drops in your eyes and then made you watch a video? that doesn't seem right...

I think you might want to take it easy on your eyes for a few days. Something about eye surgery?

Sheri had Lasik done a few years back and loves it.

Hi Kim!
when is the surgery? Glad to hear you are loving the Kors knit, and noone, least of all us knitters, expects anything close to project monogamy. :), I just bought yarn yest for the stole I told you has been calling my name. Now to finish up a couple more things before casting on. So you go girl, you just finished up mondo projects, so go ahead and cast on if you haven't.
