Life in Utila
|Niki Wiki at Anchor Utila|
|Utila main street|
The weather has been very cool - as in temperatures in the low 70's with constant breezes. Jonesy even has worn a sweatshirt and long pants at night! We've found that the cool temps have made it easier to do little boat chores, take long walks, and knit on heavy sweaters. We still haven't gone swimming yet because the water is only 78 degrees right now. It will climb up to the 80's soon and we'll wait for then. Even the younger crowd is getting chilled on their dives.
We bought Honduran TIGO internet SIM cards for our USB sticks today so we both have internet service on the boat at anchor! How cool is that? No longer do we have to risk losing our computers to the sea as we carry them in backpacks to shore for internet. But it also means that we'll spend less time on boat chores and knitting on things like these cotton Spa Cloths worked up in Sugar'n Cream yarn. And this little Garter Stitch Baby Blanket and Hat Set for the Holiday Mystery Gifts Yahoo group.Sometimes you just need a super easy and quick knit. My problem was finding a model for the hat! So I wandered the streets of Utila and came across this adorable little baby. Photos were taken, and then I left the blanket and hat with the mother. She is still probably wondering who was that crazy lady and why did she knit for my baby?
