, Entering this competition got me thinking.. about the Crafty connection. I love the freedom that Cycling gave me when I lived abroad in Germany. I have found that knitting/crochet has given me the same freedom mentally. But I do miss the freedom that Cycling gave me physically. I have given up cycling since I have been back in the UK full time, for the simple reason that the roads are not safe enough. And to be honest, I don’t want to be target practise either for any of the large lorries that move goods around my local area. But I do miss cycling. The latest bout of gorgeous weather has made me miss it even more.
This article http://theknitter.themakingspot.com/blog/knitters-who-cycle-and-cyclists-who-knit got me thinking.. is there some untold connection of crafting and cycling? I was inspired to write this post by one of my favourite designers Ysolda Teague. I have been a long time fan of Ysolda’s, isn’t her work just wonderful. But I’m not sure.. but I am interested in finding out more.
How do you get around? What is your mode of transport? I recently spent lots of time on trains, so I always have a small project with me for crocheting/ knitting in public. Do you knit/ crochet in public? I have had some good and bad experiences with crafting in public so I would love to hear your stories/experiences.
In other news..I have finished my first knitting project. A bright cobalt blue beanie. Photos coming soon. Have a good weekend!
