Do you ever have difficulty working with dark-colored yarns? Is it hard to see the stitches at night or on a cloudy day? I know I do, especially when I sit down after a long day and want to relax in the evening and crochet. I get out my project and then I need to turn on every light in the house to see what I’m doing. Then I discovered the LED Headlight. It’s a hands free light and you wear it on your head.
I have to say, I feel rather silly wearing it, and it makes me think of a surgeon working with delicate instruments! But who cares when you can continue to crochet and see what you’re doing without ruining your eyesight or risking a mistake in your work along the way.
The LED Headlight is flexible so you can direct the light where you need it most. The straps are adjustable around your head to make it comfortable to wear. It uses three AAA batteries which are easy to find in the stores, no special batteries required. It’s portable, lightweight and I’ve used it in the car while waiting for the kids’ soccer practice in the evening.
I found that for an overall spotlight on your crochet, this is the best solution without having to buy an expensive lamp. The LED Headlight was about $10 and I feel it was the best investment. I hope you find this helpful for you if you are having trouble working with dark-colored yarns.
