That was how my father always described his game of golf. Before you start to wonder, I haven’t widened my interests involving sticks and balls: that’s still restricted to knitting.
Back in January, my mother asked me to knit her a cover. In fact, what she said (by text) was:
Hi I am getting great value out of pink hat and neck warmer u knit. Just find both brill not only 4 golf. Ta! Could u knit cover 4 a golf club, please. I lost 1 & cant replace it. Wider than sock & longer & narrower than hat. Any bright colour. Hope all well.
Regarding the colour, she had further suggestions:
Yes turquoise, anything else. It can b gaudy!
Scouring around for club-cover pattern on Ravelry I found that most have been designed by Sarah Wilson a.k.a: Sexy Knitter.
I also noticed that she used Malabrigo for some of her designs. That reminded me that I had this lone skein, looking for a function in life.
This helped me decide on Whimsies as the pattern in Malabrigo.
Now, yarnie-readers amongst you already know Malabrigo’s characteristic of improbable softness. A softness that should destine it only for use around the face. I took a straw-poll from the Twitter-verse, and @Theelfyone summed it up by proclaiming:
omg. Luckiest golf club on the planet.
I’m sure many of you feel using Mmmalabrigo for a club-cover is a nice wool wasted – and I’m ambivalent myself. I *will* say that the gorgeous-ness of knitting with Mmmalabrigo helped nine inches of 1×1 ribbing whiz by.
