The bikes had a wash yesterday, so while they were all out (and it’s Tour de France week) I though I’d introduce them all to you.
These are J’s who takes his cycling very seriously and is also a volunteer for the council to look after local cycle paths.
For a reason completely unknown to me, he decided to name his bikes. This is Charlotte (church)
This is the road bike, Catherine (jenkins)
Have you noticed what’s happening here? Yes, they’re all named after Welsh opera singers…the problem we have now, is what to name Dylan’s bike…
On the knitty front…the Japanese lace socks are coming on very well. I have turned the heel on both socks using a gusset (not sure if there’s a proper name, but it’s the one where you knit a panel, then pick up the sts along the edges) a much tidier heel I find!
I might even get these finished before the end if the Tour de France. Therefore, on the day I cast off the socks, I shall name them after the rider who wins the Polka Dot Jersey for that stage.
And, if I remember to write down all the instructions, I’ll share the pattern with you too.
Just in case you haven’t seen enough photos today…We had a bit of a baking day yesterday for Dylan, as he has an end of term party to go to this morning and needed to take nibbles:
Iechyd da i pawb!
