stitch ‘n bitch: the knitted bicycle
A friend of mine is going to teach me to knit; we’re thinking of starting our own little stitch ‘n bitch for two. The idea of getting together for a night every week or two for tea, knitting, and good conversation has me extremely excited. Which just goes to show that it’s not the location that makes a place as much as the people you meet and friendships you forge while there.
And so, in preparation for our knitting project, I thought I’d google for some ideas. I typed the words “bicycle knitting pattern” just for fun and came across this awesome image (above). A knitted bicycle! I’m not sure what you’d do with it and how to even begin making something this elaborate, but it sure as hell beats the little stick-figure bicycle I was envisioning embroidering to the end of my beginner-level scarf.
Is it just me or do you find yourself doodling bikes, looking for bike themed cards, and searching for bike related embroidery patterns when you’re not actually riding your bike? Please tell me I’m not alone on this one.
