Who doesn't love a helpful little gadget?
Sue has always been taken with gadgets, but she really got it right this time.
The lady crochets a lot in winter and has done four peppermint creations over the past few years: one for Shauna, one for us (I guess to eventually go to PJ someday if she wants one), and two for the cat lady to raise money in her auctions. Shauna purchased one of those back from cat lady and gave it to a friend.
Sue wrote a guest blog for me way back in 2017 where she explained the rather involved process: The Afghan Explained.
She has the wool for a fifth peppermint throw and actually began it, but she has shifted to a different pattern for the sake of variety.
Now that I have filled in the background, let us return to the gadget thingie.
Lighting is a problem. It seems that there is never enough of it in her work spaces. I mean I have recently told you that she sees brighter than the rest of us, but her work corners aren't all that well lit, and her aging eyes begin to struggle with close work.
She has tried my photography headlamps, but one is heavy, and even I don't like it. While I love my other lightweight one, Sue still doesn't prefer to wrap it around her tresses.
You can see the solution below.
It a lightweight gadget thingie that hangs around her neck to illuminate her work perfectly. And it's pink too. Bonus.
Bur hark! What is this new pattern? It's not peppermint.
