Hooray! (hooray, hooray, hooray)

My new Verilux floor lamp just arrived.

I've been waiting impatiently for ever so long....well, not so long really, I ordered on Saturday and they shipped on Monday. But waiting impatiently all the same.

Notice active fiber crafting featured on inside package. Promising, promising. So let's see how hard it is to put together.

Unpacking was a bit of a puzzle. It was, well, compactly and intricately packed. Instructions say "save all packaging to use in case of return." Yeah, right. Even with the helpful diagram, I can guarantee there is no way I would ever get it back into the original box.

I was so excited by the prospect of trying out the fully assembled object, that I forgot to take more pictures of the process. But it was pretty darn easy, "Line up screw holes" being the trickiest bit. (I leave it to your varied imaginations to make what you will of that - Leslie, I am thinking of you.)

Fiat Lux! I love it , I love it, I love it. I can see tiny stitches. I can see true colors. And it even has a handy, dandy cute little "utility tray".

I think I'll start saving up for the portable table model.

Hey! Just because I talk about moving my balls when I knit 2 socks on ml doesn't mean my mind's in the gutter (LOL) - does it?

I'm still rather in love with my Ott light - the balance isn't the greatest but the light is wonderful. Enjoy having sunshine on demand :)

One of the expenses of getting older is upgrading all the lamps to something brighter. It makes SUCH a difference.

Enjoy your new lamp. I know I find having great light a true joy.

Yay! I love my Ott light! I really need it to knit socks, unless it's really bright during the day. I keep thinking I'm going to get a table model for the living room; maybe I'll put it on Santa's list this year ;-)

Your chair looks so comfy!!

My confirmation word is nshbrwy - Nash Brewery??

I love your knitting setup there. I really should think about getting one of those lights so I can see better, especially when I do most of my knitting at night.
