Knitters, Start Your Needles... Cyclists, Start Your, uh...

Bon jour, mes amis!!

Today is zee fabulous start of zee fabulous Tour de France. Zee race starts in London (London? London is not in France, mes petits, despite many efforts to zee contrary.)

Ok, I can't keep up the fake bad French accent for an entire post. But it's true - today (the prologue time trials) and tomorrow take place in England. And they say Americans are bad at geography.

The Tour starts at 3:00 p.m. London time, which works out to... right about now, I think. And therefore, the start of the Tour de France Knit Along!

I will be making a second Nettie for the KAL, since she falls rather neatly into the market bag category. I am scheduled to teach Nettie at our local LYS, so once that is done, I'll post the pattern here on the blog.

Nettie:

Here's a link to Tour coverage in English.

And en francais.

Great first day! I've been "watching" on Velonews.com and it looks like everyone got off to a great start!

What a great looking bag! What colors are you using for the 2nd one?

I'm using hot pink as the solid color, and a pink/yellow/orange varigated for the netting part. Yes, it will be VERY bright, lol.
