I spy...

Find fun and function with Knit or Crochet Reading Glasses at Patternworks!

It's always a great idea to consider your eye health and a delight to add a colorful accessory to enhance your knitting or crocheting experience. Have you had your eyes checked lately by a board certified eye doctor? Are they strained? Do you have enough light on your projects?  Do you rest your eyes when they feel tired?  When you show your eyes a little love, they respond in kind with a renewed appreciation for color, detail and accuracy which are all so valuable to us as creative people.
Enjoy your summer projects and reading everyone!

Happy summer knitting everyone,
