Moody blue eyes

I finished the first Moody Blues Monkey sock on Sunday afternoon whilst knitting with "the girls"! I heart this color...I might even have to splurge and buy another skein of the same color...just to have on hand...just in case I need a second pair of socks in...well, yes...the same color!! LOL!

And while at my yearly eye exam yesterday, I started this between being dilated, poked and prodded in the eyeballs for 2 hours:

I only dropped one stitch working the closure at the picot edge.

Things that make you go "hmmm": The eye technician checks the vision on my right eye, I struggle, but I seem to get it. She then checks the vision on the left eye. Using the same letter arrangement. I get it. She is amazed at the improvement in my left eye over the right. I explain that yes, my vision is better in my left eye, but I had the letters memorized from the previous exam and was able to more easily decide which letter was displayed because of it, AND that it wasn't a very well controlled exam. She then remarks on my great memory. It's only 5 letters...I'm not that far gone! Why don't they scramble the letter sequence so "learning" doesn't play a part in it? At any rate, I seemed to pass all the tests, including glamour shots of my optic nerve! 'Til next year!

What a perfect seque to this lovely pair of eyes

Happy Wednesday!!

I swear the dragonfly is laughing!
I love how the purple flowers draw out the same shades in the socks!

Ha! Got a good chuckle out of your "memory test" comment.

Moody Blues is a gorgeous colorway! (...and the Sheep 2 Shoe version followed me home from BSG...)

Wow! The dragonfly is amazing!! Incredible photo!

Hey, my right eye is worse than my left and I made quite similar comments when I had my eye exam two weeks ago!!

Love the moody blues! Very proud of you for maybe just maybe buying more than one skein of the same color!
