I decided to take the bicycle on a tour of the neighborhood last night, and got my helmet on, velcro'ed my pants leg shut, and rode around for a while as the sun set. I was going to go once more "around the block" when I hit a patch of sand, braked a little harder than I should have, and flew through the air sideways onto the pavement. My knees hit first, ripping my jeans, then my hands, then my (gasp) head. Nothing reinforces the concept of "you need to wear your helmet" than the pavement coming toward your head at 9.8 m/s^2.
I'm mostly scraped up, but I put a bandage on my worst scraped bits, put new pants on, and went out to dinner last night. I ache this morning. My right foot got twisted somehow, and my knee aches.
BUT... yesterday I finished the applied I-cord edging for the Big Kureyon cat bed, knit the first 4 plain rows, and the increase rows. It's chugging right along, just like I want it to. :)
