lighted magnifier (on sale now for $19.59, but possibly available at Amazon or Jo-Anns as well), I'd do it a bit more. There are some cool floor models too, but they're pretty pricey. I used to have a magnifier (without a light) that hung around my neck like this one would, but magnifier and light sounds like a real game-changer.
Right now I'm working on a random project with three cute owls, but I've seen some cute free patterns online I'd like to try. I'm not much for multi-tasking something like these though, so anything else will wait til my owls are done.
