I finished the FINAL row of the Icarus shawl at knitting last night. Took a deep bow to encouraging applause and put it away so I could concentrate on the binding off process when I got home, since it seemed (at least on first reading last night) to be "a process". Upon arriving home I decided to look at the directions again, and it is not that bad. It's slow and tedious, but not that bad. I should have everything bound off tonight and if I'm really good, I will have it blocked as well. (of course I started binding off last night, I'm nearly to the center)
Today I had an eye exam and my prescription has not changed in the last 5 years, which is great. I had everything checked and while I currently look like an alien with my large pupils, my retina's are very photogenic. I ordered new frames since my current glasses are 10 yrs old. I can still keep them around as a back up pair, which is great. I don't think I will be ordering new contacts. I am all astigmatism (Latin for: god hates you) so contact lenses are very expensive for me. Oh well. During the screening I was asked if I do any detail work. LOL! I told them knitting, sewing, embroidery, etc. One of the techs expressed interest in my felted bag. If she is still there when I pick up my glasses this evening I will give her my card and let her know about the Thursday gatherings.
