Not seeing straight

One of the fun things about failing eyesight is having to do something over again, because you didn’t see the pattern correctly the first time.

I’m making an Aviary Hat, by Abundant Earth Fiber – in their luscious United Tribe wool (it really is gorgeous: bouncy and warm and soft). I figured this would be a quick, easy knit for my healing hands. And it probably would be, if I had put on my glasses to read the chart and seen that there are TWO rounds of stockinette between purl rows in the pattern (as opposed to the ONE round I knit). I got a good couple inches in before I caught it, so unnecessary knitting when I should probably be avoiding it altogether. *sigh*
