GK Short Cuts Episode 5 - Just Me, Myself, and Husband
Record Date:  7/31/21 Publish Date: Next Thursday Edited by: Bryan Lloyd Kelsi is currently riding Ragbrai (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) and is having a wonderful time! Next week my husband and I will be traveling without or son to Seattle to celebrate our good friends engagement party (1 year late 😉) Beverage Review: New Glarus Brewing Co. - Totally Naked Announcements Don’t Forget about Hat not Hate MAL!  Check out our website gravelknits.com for additional information.  Deadline is Sept 13. Yarnspinners Tale’s Podcast just posted an episode 7/26.  Cindy has paused the podcast for a while due to her mother’s illness.  She does have a website and a ravelry group if you would like to reach out. Updates I felt like all I was doing was knitting flames!  But today-I finished them!  I now have 10 completed dumpster fire ornaments, 9 blocking and one in line to block.  Thank you Husband! It helped to lay out all of my not completed dumpsters to see what I needed On Monday-my husband found them on the floor!  I have no idea if it was my son or the cat or maybe just a freak accident-but I put them back up and It’s was a nice home base to see where I am at with all of them. I’m hoping to cast on one more Hat Not Hate hat-I have a skein for Vanna’s choice blue yarn, and I think it would be nice to find a fun pattern for it-if you have any ideas please message or email us!  I would love some ideas!  I plan on casting on as soon as I’ve bound off my dumpsters. Since I’m trying to focus on finishing my dumpsters I haven’t been working on my other projects, but I’m excited to get back to them!

GK Short Cuts Episode 4 - A Return to Sweaters and Trail Etiquette
Record Date:  6/30/21 Publish Date: 7/15/21 Our First Sweaters! CC: Daelyn Pullover by Isabell Kraemer Ravelry Link Gravel Knits Website Link   KJ - No links to my sweater, I don’t even have a clue what it was called.  It’s not even finished. 3-Trail Safety and Etiquette LInk to Rails to Trails Conservancy Riding on Bike trails - Trail Etiquette and other helpful tips While it’s not exactly trail etiquette, this is your friendly reminder to wear a bicycle helmet! There are three major aspects to riding on a trail, Be Nice!, Yield, and Ride responsibly No two trails are the same, but many of the same principles apply, even if you compare paved no matter where you ride. Be Observant Start by knowing where you are.  What trail are you on? What county are you in? Does the trail have any times it is closed - times of day or times of year?  There may be times it’s acceptable to ride on a trail when it’s closed but it’s often best to follow trail closings and stay off. Ex construction Sometimes you may actually be, but most likely you’re not the only person out there.  You want to acknowledge not only your surroundings but the people around you as well. Too often you’ll get someone flying down the bike trail going way faster than they should, creating unnecessary risk to everyone else.   Know who is allowed on the path or trail you’re riding. Ride Right, Pass Left Especially on more urban bike trails, act as if you’re a car.  In the US that means ride on the right and pass on the left. Slowing down when you come up on someone.  When you do go to pass, let the person or people you’re passing know that you’re coming.  I prefer to say something like “Passing on your left” or “Two bikes coming on your left” This is especially helpful if you’re riding in a group. Who gets to go? Essentially what it boils down to, if you’re faster, slow down or stop for people who aren’t as fast and then pass when it’s safe. Bikers should yield to pedestrians and equestrians all the time and the winter may also include snowshoers or skiers.  On mtb trails, yield to the person climbing their bike up the hill. Don’t block the trail This has two parts - Stopped: Trails can be beautiful places to spend time, perhaps enjoying a beer, but if you’re stopped it’s best to get off the trail. Riding: If you’re riding with a group it’s easy to get is a double line making it easier to talk with your friends, but know that for others to use the trail it’s best to follow in a single line Be nice! That’s FO for now!  Talk to you in our next short and in the next Gravel knits full episode!
