Fore! The Golfer In My Life


Pattern: Spiral Rib Putter Cover by Sarah Peasley
Yarn: Knit Picks Andean Silk - Cinnamon #23507, held two strands together
Needles: US 5 dpn
Start Date: 06/03/08
Finish Date: 06/11/08
Notes: Maybe I'll knit Sarah's club covers to match! Row 2 of rib pattern was hard to follow.

Last night I casted off a putter cover for my hubby. This is the third one I've knit for him, so I hope this one is around for awhile. The first one he lost on a green somewhere. Therefore, on the second putter cover I attached a note saying "If found, please call ph # and my wife will knit one just for you. Thanks." That cover fell apart.

Hubby said that the second cover fell apart because it was not heavy enough, it had to be knit more tightly. I tend to knit very loosely so this time I held two strands of worsted weight yarn held together and knit on US #5 dpn. If this does not hold up I'll felt the next one.

Hubby, here is another putter cover for you and I hope it is strong enough to withstand the rigors on the course and I hope it brings you good luck on Saturday!

You should model it on a golf club!

That note is soooo funny...can you imagine being the golfer that found the other putter cover. Oh, you are funny!

Joy, the original photo did show the putter cover on a golf club, but I guess it did not show very well. here's a better photo, just for you!

'The hubby' here.
Just wanted to say that although this putter cover is wonderful (as were all the other ones), I am still waiting for that 'magical' putter cover that actally helps me MAKE some putts when golfing.
