Knit 2 Par 3

Wednesday, August 22, 2007


A big confession: I never got the hang of long tail cast on until John sent me this link to a Make video. I am a cable cast on, English knitter. It's not the most efficient way to do the thing, but it gets the job done.

Also note: probably the only materials this woman could find in Berlin to knit with was cable and cassette tape.

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Seems like all the knitting bloggers are off schedule and on vacation, me being no exception. (Except maybe this girl, she's been a-knitting all summer).

But I have a lot to report.

First, I had a personal best golf game last week while in Maine: a score of 47. True, it was only on the par 3 course, but I checked a score card from last summer when I proudly shot a 68 and lost four balls. Using high school algebra, I calculate that if I had been playing on a real golf course, my score would have been 134, which still isn't good, come to think of it.

Then, later in the day I scored two skeins of Noro Iro at the Custom Shop in Kennebunkport for 40% off and whipped up a pair of socks for Emily who, due to the 65 degree weather, has taken to wearing long johns for her cold legs:

Later in the day, I went looking for cable inspiration on the beach, look at this:

I've finished up about a million things this last week, so I will get crack-a-lackin on the pictures.

Snore, not Fore!

We paid a visit to the new, much touted Mini Golf course in Bayonne on Saturday and we were definately underwhelmed.

Is there a category for golf on smaller scale than mini golf? Is there Tiny Golf? Or Microscopic Golf? Atomic Golf? Because that is what they have there in Bayonne. An itsy, bitsy nine hole course. Only nine holes! It took us 15 minute to whiz on through, even with the clever water hazard on hole 5.

We were considerably cheered up by stopping at Petridis for some hot dogs and red birch beer, but still!
