Golf and Knitting Were Made for Each Other

This weekend we are watching the Ryder Cup on television.  I always look forward to sporting weekends, as it's a fabulous excuse to sit and knit or crochet whilst watching whatever sport is on offer.

So this weekend it's golf.  An excellent sport for knitting as each match lasts for hours.  I'm watching Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson and the rest of the European and US teams.

And whilst it's on I'm crocheting and knitting away happily, and eating this delicious cake I've made!

I've made excellent progress with my little squares for my sun rise cushion cover,

And there's no better way to cope with the boredom of endless stocking stitch, than to have an exciting sport to watch.

Look how fast I'm knitting my skirt!

Wow, the golf is exciting - I'm racing through my work-in-progress.


  1. The cake looked wonderful, I wouldn't say no with a nice cup of tea.

  2. My husband loves his golf and so the Ryder Cup has featured heavily this weekend. I did sit with him for a while to finish my bag but I didn't see much of the golf as I was tying up loose ends:)
    Can't wait to see the skirt - I made several knitted skirts back when I had knitting machines.
