Almost Done

This past week I finished knitting my main golf club covers:  the driver, the 3-wood and the 5-wood.  After checking my golf bag, I decided I needed one more cover for my 6-hybrid.


Thankfully, Chris Knits in Niagara has a free knitting pattern on her blog.  Val an Ravelry member (no blog) has kindly shared her directions for adding stripes to the "socks" (bottom part of cover).  Today, with others doing handwork at Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching, I shall finish knitting my last golf club cover.  As you can see, it is almost done. Yay! I will look forward to starting other needlework projects.


A note to other knitters in regards to these covers.  The original directions are for knitting in the round.  I was clumsy uncomfortable with holding more than two knitting needles.  Therefore, I opted to knit them flat and join the seams by hand.  It has worked out well.

The "hoods" (top part of cover) are knitted with eyelash yarn and wool that is to be felted for a tighter and more protective cover.  After I finish the last cover, I shall be washing these in hot water in order for the wool to become felted.  That will be a new experience, and I hope it works.

Also, having fun linking up with Karen at Sew Many Ways.  May the U.S. and Canadian viewers have a safe and care-free Labor Day!

  3. I was going to say that I would make these for my son's clubs, but I don't think he would like the fluffiness. Perhaps they would work once they are felted. I really like them.

  6. And I'll agree ... it'll be interesting to see them after you've felted them.
