What to knit

is it just washcloths, socks, sweaters, and the occasional blanket, cowl ?

posting this different places because i'm curious about the projects that people will do, when they're definitely NOT ever doing other projects. i think some of you may surprise me...
I have been making unusual items. Being new to knitting I choose something that teacches me a different stitch or technique, but since I don't really wear hats and scarves I have done the felted clogs and now I am doing felted bowls.

You could knit a sampler afghan. When I learned to knit, my teacher told me that when she first learned, she bought a book with sample stitches and made squares of each stitch for practice, that she eventually put together to make an afghan.

I have this book, but haven't tried any of the stitches yet: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sampler-afghans
