Plenty of librarians have 20/20 vision. But then again, plenty don’t. If you’re one who needs a soft, safe place for her specs, Holly Chayes’ colorwork case may be just the thing. Stereotypical is cleverly constructed in one piece, with the Fair Isle exterior and a laceweight lining worked as two sections of a closed tube which folds in on itself. Vivid colors breathe new life into the classic argyle pattern and make this case a nerd chic statement. Your glasses may be stereotypical, but their case doesn’t have to be.
