Rory McIlroy Hit a Drive Into a Spectator’s Pocket at the Tour Championship


It’s not crochet but it’s worth watching: Rory McIlroy hit a golf ball all the way down the fair way … and it landed *in* a spectator’s pocket!!!!

Originally posted on The Big Lead:

Rory McIlroy hit his drive on the par 4 14th at The Tour Championship into a spectator’s pocket. The spectator was asked not to move while Rory and an official made their way to him to decide how to properly play the ball. Rory took a drop and then hit a nice wedge onto the green.

While the fan didn’t get to keep the ball that landed in his pocket, he did walk away with a very unique story, a handshake from Rory, and likely a souvenir of some sort.

2014/63 – crochet flower and button earrings!

Do you ever find that you have nigh unending heaps of bright buttons going to waste?

Or that you can never find the *perfect* project to add them to?

Well never fear, Happiness Crafty is here with a pattern for some gorgeous flower earrings!

I have a feeling you could equally adapt other patterns for the same purpose – the heart pattern we showed a while ago (great for Valentine’s themed earrings), maybe even the pineapple or the skates (instead of giving them a winter theme, you could use summer colours and use several smaller buttons for wheels instead of blades). You could make earrings like this with any shape pattern! Or even wacky or novelty buttons.

It’s all in UK terms already, and looks pretty easy, so go crazy!

2014/61 – granny squares bag idea

So this one is more of an idea for how to turn unused afgans or granny squares into a cute tote bag!

There are instructions about the handle and lining, and she describes the squares as 4 inches across so you can make any design of granny square which fits. There’s a diagram too. It’s really easy.
