Slow Sunday Knitting

Evidently, I've been bitten by the knitting bug recently as other stitching projects have been put aside. I needed a new set of golf club covers and desired to knit them. After searching the internet for a good pattern of which there are many, I've settled on several. I'll attempt to combine different patterns along with a final design that I have in mind. The outcome will be a bit of a mystery even for myself (fingers crossed). It's not a pretty/cute project, yet functional. The yarn I am using is not an attractive color by itself, but it coordinates nicely with my new golf bag.


When I get to the stockinette section of the cover, I prefer to knit in the round and will use the magic loop method. In the past I've struggled a bit as I don't magic loop often. Therefore, I went to youtube for a brush up. This link by Rox Richardson has been helpful personally and 
may help others should you want try the magic loop method.

As summer draws to a close, I'd like to share a field of small sunflowers from a nearby field. Two years ago, there were large sunflowers planted. These must be their seedlings. 

Today as I link with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching party, I'll be magic looping!

Until next time,

Jill

  5. What a stunning field of sunflowers! I have never heard of knitted covers for golf clubs. Yours are perfectly co-ordinated with your new golf bag.

  7. You are so multi-talented when it comes to needlework, Jill! Your new golf club covers will look quite spiffy for your next round of golf, I'm sure :) Love sunflowers (along with hydrangeas they are my favorite flower) so your photo certainly brings a smile this morning :) Happy September to you!
