    Do any of you have a light that hangs around the neck? If so do you like it?

    I know some have a magnifying option and others are just focused lighting. I found all sorts of lights - just not what I was looking for. Do any of you have any ideas where I can find such a beastie? (Or I should say: Can you enlighten me? arrarr)

    I have seen them, but I can't remember just where. I found one that goes over your ear like a phone piece. Did you want the magnifier too?

    I really don't know. I wonder if something with an ear piece would be painful after a while because I wear glasses.

    Yes, or it might not fit properly. Sorry.

    Nancy's Notions has one - Hands-Free Craft Light D117519 for $#.49 until 10/08 and free shipping. Keepsake just started advertising one that looks more substantial. It was in the last catalog but I haven't seen it in person yet.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the tips. I wonder how stiff the wrapping one from Keepsake is if you can also set it on the table. Looks like I'll have to make a trip to the local craft stores.

    I was impressed that the batteries last 120 hours with this light... the price isn't bad either.
