As a knitter myself, I appreciate the connections between knitting and cycling. Most obviously, there’s the wonderfully warm and cozy hats, scarves, and mittens that I can knit for me and my friends. Maybe when I get better I will also make stylish sweaters and vests. And spats!

Reviewing this past week’s submissions to the Vélocouture group on Flickr, I was struck by this photo, below, of a woman wearing a handknit dress on her bike.

I love the bulky stitches and the belled sleeves. The blue hued tights are a nice touch, as are (of course) the basket and the wonderful sensation of movement.
