good, bad, and wierd?

The good is that my back continues to improve, albeit slowly. The PT exercises get a bit easier, albeit equally slowly. Lots of time riding on the bus meant that the hat I am making for La Infanta is finished, and I'm about halfway done with the matching bootees. Littly-girlchild accessories are so quick to knit!

Today was the second half of my eye health exam. Mostly the visual fields test, to keep tabs on my optic nerve function, but they also took a second set of pictures of the inside of my eye, fortunately without having to dilate the pupil this time. This time I asked if I could see the pictures, since undilated eyes can focus, and it was fascinating the different views possible through computer modeling magic. The technician even offered to print printed me out a copy of the simple view to keep! (I thought about posting the picture here, but decided that was a bit too weird, just because I find it interesting doesn't mean that folks want to see retinal images...)

The bad is that my beloved REI rainhat is definitely gone. On a day of pain and spaciness, I left it on the bus when it stopped raining, and it was never turned in to Tri-Met lost and found, alas. I guess I will be learning to work with Goretex, and that will be my Very Next Project, as the relatively warm and dry-ish weather will not last long. Fortunately there is a good supplier of suitable outdoor fabric and supplies: Rose City Textiles; and fortunately I already have the perfect hat pattern.(PDF image, slow)
