I've finished the poncho and the potholders, so right now I'm thinking about what to make next. I want to use up my 'stash' (don't laugh, pictures below show all I have) before I buy new yarn (that will be a bit of a challenge on this island), but I'm not sure what I want to make. A hat, of course. Maybe even a few hats, now that I know where I can send them to (see the link in the first comment on this post). And while I'm at it, I might even consider a scarf to donate. Try my hand at some cables or something to make it interesting. I'm not too happy about all that gray, but it is good yarn (most of it is real wool), so I don't want to waste it.
I think the cotton scraps will be another set of potholders and maybe a headband (or two). And maybe the pink is enough to try knitting a sunhat?
Wouldn't that be great, to be knitting hats that I can use myself? I still have to figure out how to get a stiff brim though. Maybe knitting them on a much smaller size needles would help. Going to look into those patterns I found.
I wanted to use my e-reader to get through the endless stockinette (I can't read paper books when I knit) and found out that though my subscription stopped working here on Curaçao, I can download books that I downloaded before. And since I hadn't read all of the books I chose before, I started browsing my archives. And found that I had five books by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee at my fingertips (one of them I own, the rest through the subscription). So now I'm happily reading away.
And getting a bit obsessed with knitting, because she makes that sound perfectly normal. She also makes me itchy to build a real stash, but I'm holding that off until we move. I hope to be able to buy myself a 'crafting cupboard' to hold my yarn and fabrics and other stuff (oh, I do dream of claiming an entire room, but for now a whole cupboard would be heaven!).
