Finally, schedules and weather cooperated, and DH took me to get a belated birthday prezzie:
Yay! Not only is it orange, it has argyle patterns! I have grand plans to bike to work every day--not that grand really, since work is 4 blocks away. Also, I'm already gearing up (heh) for all the free beignets I'm going to get at knit night; we knit at Cafe Ventana, where anyone who bikes there can get a free beignet!
My next project is going to be a lace edging for the top of the basket (sort of like these shelf-liners that mooncalf made), and a cozy for the bell (the plainest one at the shop still has a big sticker saying "I heart my bike," which although I agree, seems a bit much). Fortunately, there's some orange yarn leftover from this shawl, just enough for some bicycle-bling.
