Gonna Try Knitting a Yoda Headcover

nevets88

4,655 views

Downloaded the instructions from Etsy. Getting ahead of myself though, still learning the basics of knitting, casting on, knit stitch, so this is gonna take awhile, will post progress here. My Jan Craighead cover is in its last days, and always wanted to make my own. Now that I know a little more about knitting, I see how good the quality of Jan Craighead covers are. None of the free patterns out there look as good. Another thing doing it myself is I can make the covers extra long, because most covers you buy aren't long enough, the shaft will rub on your golf bag.

Don't try to sell it. Disney has been sending cease and desist letters to Etsy craftspeople making Yoda thingies. Trademark violation.

Kind of funny that you mention that. 10 years ago or so, My wife had this friend who started her own on-line business making these Disney Bedroom Sign thingies using people's kid's names in the sign made with Disney Characters and what not. (Okay, horrible description but you get the idea.) Anyway, she started taking orders for these signs and making them and sending them out. Any my wife asked her how she got Disney's permission. She said she hadn't. Sure enough about 4-5 weeks into her new business a "Strongly Worded Letter" arrived at her house from Disney's law team telling her that she'd better stop or she'd be taken to court and all kids of other threats. It was pretty severe. Needless to say she doesn't do that anymore.

A lady I use to work with got a new sewing machine that would stitch characters.   She started selling t-shirts with Disney characters and also received a letter telling her to quit.   They take their marketing very seriously, as they should.

It's not just that. You're required to protect your trademarks, etc. or else you give up your rights to them.

I don't blame Disney in the least. I was actually surprised that my wife's friend actually thought she could use Disney's name and likenesses to make money without their permission. My wife's friend was annoyed by Disney's response. I was like "What did you think they would do?"

It has been 9 months.  Let's see the result!

I got stuck trying to learn a couple of stitching patterns and then the whole lockdown thing happened. I've also soured on knit headcovers because they are so fragile. But one day, I will get back to it. The yarn and needles are sitting there, waiting.

Lockdown was supposed to be the time to learn new hobbies or a language or something 😉

I, of course, have done neither 😅

Wife got me this a couple years ago. As I walk to the course the neighbor kids come up and say “hey Uncle we like your Yoda”  

Aloha,

    • Thanks guys, yeah that is definitely something to consider if I go down that route about the pairing and tags for sure @Missouri Swede.
    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]  
    • Another cold day where it didn't get above 50 during the round. Played the outside (Hills at Community) 45-46-91. 4 pars offset by 4 doubles and a triple, the rest being bogeys. Only two 7s on the card which is good by me, just can't get back into the 80s. Iron play was as good as yesterday, if not better. Driver was keeping the ball in play which helps too. Just some poor 3 wood shots that really hurt me, one being a full top that went 5 yards in front of me. Glad that Ohio weather hasn't shut me down all the way yet. This also marked my 60th round played at my home courses for the year. I've probably played 80 total though because my courses were closed for the first 2 months of Covid.
