Singular Stitches: Eye-Pod

Tuesday, February 14, 2006


In an earlier post, I referred to my eye-pod. No, not an iPod. (iPods are really cool, and I've thought hard trying to come up with a good reason why I should have one, but cannot. 'Really Cool' just doesn't cut it.) And, besides, an iPod won't help with knitting when there is no light. Like this morning, on the ride into work.


Actually, my eye-pod is a book light I bought at Costco some time around the holidays. It's a clip with a sphere shaped light (which looks like an eyeball) that rotates around at any angle. I clip it to the seat belt and aim the beam on my knitting, and so I can knit in the dark. DH came up with the term eye-pod.

Let there be light!

Have a lovely Valentine's Day, whatever your plans may be.

What a neat idea! I like knitting in the car and that would be great for nighttime journeys.

That's a wonderful idea! I can't x-stitch in the car, but I sometimes work on handstitched quilt squares or read while on long car trips. When it's dark all i can do is sleep or do a very poor imatation of being alert and awake.

LOL! That is too funny. Great idea to clip it on the seat belt!
