Road Trip: Knit n Golf

Today was filled with some pretty fun things: a day off of work, good friends, knitting and golf as Pattie, Laurie and I made our way to Manhattan for a yarn stop, chips & beer and 18 holes of golf in Manhattan, KS. Let's start with the yarn. I always find inspiration from

Kenita's samples and designs at Wildflower. You can see my loot right there on the counter in front of her -- I can't wait to start the linen fan shawl pictured. Then a quick stop for the mandatory Mexican food fuel up for an afternoon of golf at the #1 (and most challenging!) golf course in Kansas, Colbert Hills. It winds through hills and valleys with some pretty spectacular views of the Flint Hills and started out to be very intimidating.

But, it wasn't long until we got our groove on and finished with some surprisingly low scores....considering.
