bikes

I am so happy that springtime has finally made it to Toronto.  For me this means biking season has arrived and this is double- happy-making!
With that is mind I thought I would devote this blog post to biking (where knitting is concerned -that is).

This is one of the prettiest ways I’ve seen to dress up a bike. Special occasion or no, this is every day stylish, and may keep your dress from getting dirty too.  See more at  Simeli. Leave it to the Dutch to make such a fantastic bike accessory!  Try to make your own – why not?  There is a version of this Skirt- Guard as a crochet pattern that can be found here

This bike/knit happening comes form our very own city.  What a pleasure to be biking past Comrags on Queen St. West in Toronto and see this show stopper window, the focus of a Bike Month display that I am afraid has come and gone. Here it is in picture form in case you missed it.

This is not the same knitted bike -oh no! It is a knitted bike made miniature by Christina Oh.  Witness the size of the needles and the yarn!  Now shake your head in disbelief!

The Knit Cafe has a knit/bike project too.  Oh yes we do!
The knitted bike lock cosy will makes a gal(or guy) happy just to lock-up. The lock cover was designed using sock yarn, so it will be durable and not shrink up with rain or other weather.  You  can find the pattern here

This is unrelated to biking.  Related instead to a prior blog post where I added a link to a fantastic cotton cowl pattern from the purl bee. Witness the fruits of this pattern profiling ripen into this beautiful version of the Striped Cotton Cowl. This vision in blue was knit by Ellen. Well done Ellen and thanks for sharing.

Craftily yours Kristin
