This is a FIXIE, or a fixed gear bike. Someone rides it to work at our Target. I LOVE this bike. I LOVE its Paint job. It's an old HUFFY. You don't really need many gears to ride the flats here in Chicagoland....
and I think it is the cutest bike I've ever seen.
(I've seen a lot of bikes due to Fireman's cycling life)
Sock Yarn Studio caught my eye at the library the other day. I will be knitting some of the patterns in this book. I think I'll make the Alexander Street Hat and the fair isle Kitten Mittens from this book......
When you gave me permission to rest the blanket knit for a bit, Zach asked me to copy a Free rides legend Jeremy Jones Beanie.
With friend Karen's help I came very close to a copy.
It is a simple ribbed hat with a few opposing rows of purling in another color.
We are expecting snow, so I know Zach will wear it well.
His friends from Mexico are coming for dinner and sledding this weekend. They have never seen snow.....
Happy Thursday, what are you knitting today?
