At the town-wide yard sales last weekend, I bought a new basket for my bike!
It's the perfect basket, just what I was looking for ... until I put a few items in it, like my phone, keys, or camera. Then, they all proceeded to fall out through the large holes in the basket. So, you know me, I decided to crochet a basket liner. I made a good start with some dark pink yarn. Then I discovered I didn't have as much as I thought of that color, and I switched to a pale green, to match the bike. And I crocheted. And crocheted. And I discovered that the basket had very high sides. I decided to make a liner for most of the basket :)
I joke that the liner looks like a piece of watermelon! Actually, it came out the perfect height to tie onto the middle rung of the basket. I need to trim the ties a little. But it turned out great, I think!
And look what Philip bought me for Mother's Day!! It's a speedometer -- I love it! It's nifty, fun, cool-looking. He and Julia picked it out together in town. Philip and I went for a bike ride and I clocked us all the way along. I'm not exactly sure what the other numbers mean.
