Yesterday we rode with the Dykes on Bikes in the San Francisco Pride Parade. I wore this lacy tank top that I knit from AlchemyWabi-Sabi (66% silk, 34% wool) on size 15 needles in a pattern I improvised.
I wanted to have a knitted aspect to my outfit, and at first I had big plans for something a lot more flamboyant. However, time get away from me, and I only managed to finish the tank top.
This yarn is really lovely. It's soft and slightly shiny, and I'm considering frogging the tank soon so I can knit with it again! I'm thinking it would make a really lovely wrap or shawl...but perhaps I will wear it a few more times before I rip it out.
The noise from the pipes is amazing, and it's so cool to see all the joyful people watching us. I love it, because I get to wave and blow kisses at the crowd, and lots of people wave back and cheer and tell us we are hot : )
After the parade, we had lunch in the Castro and I picked up a skein of yarn for vacation knitting at Imagiknit before we headed home for a long nap!
In my next post, I'll share some more pictures from the morning, including more of these hilarious Red Hat ladies posing with bikers!
