You may recall a few posts ago I mentioned that my younger sister Donna had made a special request for a Christmas gift last year. She's a bit of a golfer (in fact, everyone in the family is but me!) and wanted some hand knit golf club covers.
I could tell from the brief conversations we had on the topic that she did not want understated golf club covers - she wanted golf club covers that would get a bit of attention.
Naturally, I put off seriously thinking about the project until December. On my last shopping trip with my Mom we spent some time in the yarn aisle at Walmart and after a bit of waffling I decided that dog shaped covers would hit the spot - much to Ma's amusement. I can imagine her reaction to the finished objects.
Donna was monitoring progress closely and then had another bright idea -- one of the covers should be modelled on her dog Sally. (Photo below - she doesn't always wear glasses.)
I was going to bring the covers back here to London for finishing - but Donna was concerned she'd never see them again (she knows me well) and took them home with her for the final touches.
