My husband Larry started playing golf a few years ago. He went for the first time because my brother was visiting, and I suggested it as a way to entertain him. And that was it – Larry fell in love with it, and has been golf-obsessed ever since. Which was nice – I think its good that he has a hobby that he loves as much as I love mine. People suggested that I try golf, but I always pooh-pooh’d the idea – better that we each have things that we do alone.
Until we got Wii. And we started playing Tiger Woods Golf. I know – completely lame. But I love the game, and I play it all the time. And then I got to thinking that maybe I’d like real golf. And how nice it would be if Larry and I shared a hobby – because I have been a little sad that we seem to spend more time apart than with each other. So as I said, we went to the driving range a few times. And yesterday we went and played 9 holes. And I love it. It was a beautiful course, Larry is a great teacher, and it was just a lot of fun. And it was great to spend time with him, having fun, doing something that we both like. So this morning, I went and bought something other than yarn…
Yep – my own set of golf clubs. And they aren’t pink. (What is up with everything for golf being pink or purple for women?) Anyway, we are going in a little bit to play again. And I’m sitting here all dressed, shoes on, ready to go. Who knew that it could be so much fun? Hmmm…maybe I can knit myself a golf vest!
Oh, right – name of blog is Jeanne Knits….so if you glazed over at that part….how about a finished pair of socks?
I really enjoyed this pattern and this yarn. The pattern was easy to memorize, yet interesting so I didn’t mind working on them. The yarn is just gorgeous. Very soft, non-splitty and the colors are just so vibrant. I would definitely get it again – I bought this on vacation in Maine, so I’ll look for it a bit closer to home.
On the “still trying to finish what I already started” front – I’m working on finishing the Child’s First sock – I finished the first one months and months ago – and I’m clipping along on this one. I just needed a break from the Cobblestone pullover. This yarn is Sophie’s Toes – and I love it – its so squishy and soft. And the colors – just beautiful.
Have a great Sunday!
