My great grandmother taught me to crochet (doilies!) when I was 7. That was 44 years ago. I taught myself how to knit in high school but my technique is not pretty.
For the most part, I LOVE Alpaca...it is so soft. Unfortunately, it is also expensive and we don't have a huge need for warm wooly items in central Texas.
Depends on whether the island is in a cold climate or not...in either case, an afghan or two to sleep on and cover with. Then sweaters if a cold locale....a tank top if warmer...Of course, I would want a rosewood crochet hook.
I've been at it off and on for most of my life but it really has rekindled as a passion lately....for the past 2 years at least.
I have a newfound love of my old skills...especially crochet. My goal is to make at least one item for everyone on my gift list for Christmas. Having jumped into this late...the gifts are probably going to be slippers...but it is a start!
