    Way to go Lolly!!! I found your post about the fiber arts in Peru and your experiences and impressions of them incredibly interesting and insightful as well. I have longed to travel to Peru for many years and reading about your trip inspired me to start researching more so that one day I can make a trip there.
    I hope that you’ll continue to share your travel experiences because though I originally started reading for the knitting I have found your thoughts on eco-travel and your thoughtful way of seeing different cultures fascinating and enlightening.
    Thanks for the great blog!

    Your Peruvian knitting photos are wonderful. Have you thought about going to Bolivia? Many of the islands in Lake Titicaca have their own textile cultures and I particularly remember one where the men knitted long stocking stitch hats on up to six tiny, tiny dps. The various patterns represented the different phases of their lives and you could let their marital status, number of children etc. You’d often see the men sitting around knitting, and they stored their little bags of coca leaves on their heads under their hats. Amazing. Your photos brought back all those memories for me! Your new blog looks lovely!

    I was hoping to find more details about how they knit in Peru. There’s not much about the style they use. There’s a video on youtube that says its the Peruvian style, but others say in Peru they run the yarn around their necks, similar to Portuguese style knitting. Do you have any information on their style? If You could do a post with pics from your trip that would be great.
