Eye Mask Update

The eye mask worked pretty well, but I noticed a few flaws  in my execution:
1. Be sure to make your stitches tight (light gets in if you dont)
2. Choose a dark color (I used a pale lilac and it lets a little light through)
3. Use ribbon or elastic for the band (tying and untying the yarn can be a pain)
4. Be sure to use a soft yarn (Caron Simply Soft is recommended)

I think the next one will be made with a darker color and softer worsted weight yarn and a contrasting color for the finishing border. If any of you give it a try (or want one), let me know :)
Until next time!
