Here's the goodies I received from anastrophe:

A fantastic bag with a bicycle sewn on the front. I'm afraid my photos don't really show how great the the stitching of the bike looks.

You can see it better in this picture which is really to show of the cute bag/purse that has velcro loops on the back so I can attach it to handlebars or my belt. Inside are flannel cloths for wiping down my bike - this is such an excellent, thoughtful gift since my bikes live outside in the Pacific Northwest and get pretty wet. I'm always having to dry the seat off before going cycling.

And here's photos of a keychain made from bicycle chain and a blinkie light flower for the back of my bike - great since I ride my bike to commute and it's often dark then.

Thanks anastrophe!

Ooh, I love the garters that S is for Summer made for TessTessi - that is such a good idea!   Could you give some tips on how they're made as I'm totally planning on making some. What kind of fabric did you use since they'd have to be stretchy.

I'm also loving the seat covers that people have made. I thought about making one but wasn't sure about the shape/pattern but all the ones shown are awesome, so maybe I should just try it after all.

I received my package from anastrophe and it's full of great stuff. I'll post pictures tonight rather than try to describe it all right now.

Thanks anastrophe!

Thanks for the great ideas! I have lots of paint chips from painting my living room.

I had a look at your blog and thought it was really great too. I've added it to my bloglines blog subscriptions.

I've heard good reviews of a gaitor type thing called a Buff. You can check out the million ways to wear it on their website here: http://www.buffusa.com/waystowear.html

I wondered about knitting something but I might just buy one because I want something really thin.

That looks great! I have an old bike with a torn up seat so I might have to make one of these.

I found a blog where someone else had knitted a bike cover is a similar method - knitting the top flat and then picking up and knitting the sides. They did a row of eyelets round th bottom and thread i-cord through it so they could tighten it like a drawstring to secure it on the bike. I mike try that but may thread through an elastic cord instead.

Here's the blog I mentioned: http://www.knitamknit.com/blog/archives/2006/07/post_5.html
