I wanted to go to the post office and run some other errands today, so I put air in my bike tires and got going for my first ride of the year. I have two panniers for the bike, and generally only need to take one. So what to my wondering eyes should appear when I took down both panniers from their winter storage – could it be?
Yes, it is!
The fleece artist sock and pouch, missing since last August! I must have been biking somewhere and left them in one of the panniers, then never used that one again until now. Although it was a bit disappointing to see that the little bike pannier elves did not finish the sock for me, I was pleased to see how beautiful the yarn is.
In addition to packages to mail, I took a few balls of leftover Koigu to get weighed so I’d know how much I really used in the newest baby sweater. My local PO has some of the loopiest — in the best possible way– workers around. The gentleman this morning said he would weigh my yarn if I promised to pop a wheelie in the parking lot on the way out. I agreed, on the condition that there be an ambulance available in the parking lot at the same time. No wheelie, not even a skid, just a wave to the guys as they got ready to close up.
