For dyslexics

I actually made some noticeable progress on the afghan and it felt great. (After a four hour nap–not over this bug yet.)

Meantime, in case you know anyone with dyslexia, or just for sheer curiosity’s sake, I recommend this article. It says that the patterns of cones in the eyes (there’s a good graphic of them here* about halfway down) are supposed to be different between the two eyes so that the brain parses out the images via the differences. But the cones are lined up the same in dyslexics, so that mirrored images (think d and b) appear the same.

Fascinating. And they offer something one could do about it, with a simple flashing light. A little hope with your science.


*That would be at  but their website will not let me link directly to it.

I’m grateful you can knit again – and you are resting when needed!

Well, that news on dyslexia is really wonderful! Like they said, if you know the problem, you can start to fix it.

It’s also wonderful news that you are knitting again – but keep napping, too!
