magic glasses.....

Ever notice that sense of freedom that you feel when you step outside, slip on your sunglasses and it's like an invisibility cloak has been dropped over you.......maybe it's just me...but I doubt it. As soon as I don my sunglasses and start cruising down the street I take on an aloof persona, observing without it being obvious and having a confidence that is alarming to my un-sunglassed clad self. If eyes are the window to our soul, mine are the gateway to my uber persona. The one who gets behind the wheel of ghetto jepeto, cranks up the music and sings, really loud, with the windows down, what do I care, I have my sunglasses on, no one knows who I am and even if they did, I'm cool, I'm hip, I'm Uber-Carmel, knitter extraordinaire, strutting down the street dripping woolen lovelies as I go for the common horde to pick up and rave over, following me like a entourage hoping that more of the wonderfulness that is me will rub off on them or at least pass them more wooly items. The other side of me.......the Carmel walking down the street with her regular glasses on because her Magic Sunglasses are not prescription and she trips over everything and don't even think about knitting and walking at the same time, I still haven't mastered chewing gum and sitting at the same time me, moves fast, with a purpose, avoiding eye contact with anyone lest they see that fun loving Uber-Carmel is in there somewhere and try to snatch her.......
It's over 80 degrees here in Seattle, apparently the burst of sun I soaked up at lunch has boosted my endorphin sun loving vitamin D craving self to a whole new level......

Currently on the needles is Autumn Leaves by Nikki Van de Car
