One Blind Mouse

CLICK HERE to knit this cute little mouse.

Not to worry, Gentle Readers; I haven't gone missing, only sub-radar. There's a situation with my vision that makes everything I like to do (knitting, driving, blogging, knitting) temporarily challenging.

Turns out I have the left eye of someone much older and less healthy than I am, for reasons which escape my doctors. The official diagnosis is THIS, if you're interested in such things, and if you're not (neither am I), the short version is that one of the veins in my retina is blocked, which caused swelling and hemmoraging, and well, eww. The cure is just to wait until it goes away, and if it won't then there might be things like injections and lasers in my future.

For the moment, though, I'm resting my eyes as much as possible. Which isn't much because there are hats to be knitted, a book to be written, and a whole bunch of other things which require looking and seeing. The usual end-of-school maelstrom of Field Day, Junior Rose Parade, banquets, dances and dinners to attend has been cranked up to eleven by the fact that Campbell is graduating from Elementary School and Lindsay is graduating from Middle School at the same time.

Come to think of it, no wonder I'm bleeding out my eyes.

I'll be posting as much as possible, but in the meantime, knit on, and try not to blow any blood vessels.  I'll do the same.
