Does This Yarn Match My Motorcycle?

Long ago, in old house days, I used to host a bi-monthly gathering of friends we called CraftyChix that involved eating and creating and all sorts of good girlie stuff. Fast forward to two years later, and I'm looking forward to the return of CHIX to my new house, just as soon as I have something for y'all to sit on and that ordeal, friends, is coming along a bit slow.
Anyway, last fall, with winter bearing down upon us and an absence of suitable locale for CraftyCHIX, we decided it would be fun to re-invent the event and give ourselves something to look forward to for the long winter ahead. We also wanted to support a local coffee shop we like, Betty's Bikes and Buns.
Now, being that many of us CHIX are also motorcyclists, and that Betty's happens to be a moto-centric kind of place, we named our new event Moto-Knitters, and we've been having a grand old time knitting, sipping and noshing (on Betty's great* cookies) ever since.
A week or so ago I got a bug up my butt and decided we needed a logo and some T shirts, being that we've been steadily moto-knitting now for quite some time.

Of course, the next obvious thing to do was to make a couple of t-shirts.
Coolness, eh?
So, moto-knitters unite, I say, and if you're interested in joining us, come on over to Betty's on any second Thursday!!

*I'm only giving the oatmeal raisin a rating of great. The chocolate chip are SO not as good as my 'you've never eaten a good chocolate chip cookie until you've had one of mine' cookies, but that's a topic for another day.

I love, love, love my moto-knitter t-shirt!
