It’s been a whirlwind getting back to a new school year at my new location. At the end of last year I was offered a position just 2 miles away, so my days of getting up at 5:45 to trek to the other side of town are swapped for relatively easy mornings with a quick and easy commute. Once things become a little more routine I expect to finish up some notes on my summer trips to Mexico and my bike tour from Pittsburgh to DC.. But, priorities.
Like accessorizing my commuter. I was tired of looking at my sad chain stay sticker, and inspired by a Lizard Skins neoprene and velcro cover, so I thought why not knit a sort of coozie for it?
I cast on 12 stitches onto size 4 needles, knit in stockinette stitch about 8.5″, cast off and sewed it on since I wanted it to lie flat. So far so good, I’m sure eventually it will get grungy to the point that I’ll cut it off and replace it. It was quick and easy to make, so worth the experiment to me.
Most importantly, my bike will be snug and ready for fall weather. She just needs a pumpkin spice latte in her bottle cage..
