I want so much more than they've got planned

My problem is, when I knit for a while, then stop and look up, everything looks really weird. If you wear glasses, it kind of looks like what happens if one lens falls out and you're looking at the world with one eye through a corrective lens, and the other normal. I tried various degrees of eye-crossing to try and fix it, and that helped me at least read the screen a little, but as soon as I relax my eyes, they go back to being weird. Has anyone else noticed this? I know it's not my eyes going bad, because for one thing they're already bad, and I'm only twenty...

Mine do that too very occasionally, normally its if im ONLY knitting, rather than when im usually watching television so my eyes arent as focused Smiley

That happens to me sometimes when I've been knitting for a long time, but never when reading or anything else...probably because my eyes are fixed on one point very close. I've noticed that low light or very blue light (which can give me a headache) tends to make it worse. It always goes away a little while after I stop, so I wouldn't worry too much--just look up from the knitting for a few minutes every once in a while to give your eyes a rest.
