Suzy Knitting at El Prado

How happy is this knitter? A beautiful fall day at Ginger's mesa house, lovingly referred to as El Prado. The scarf is a combination of Berroco's Peruvia & Gioello by Filatura di Crosa - it's already finished & on its way to Suzy's friend, Lynn.

LakeTiticaca Pictures

Here we have Ginger practicing her new weaving technique while cruising @ high speed on Lake Titicaca - looks like a nice day for a boat ride!

These are wild vicuna, on the shores of L. Titicaca - looks like a good life to me!

Need a costume idea?
we feel it's our responsibility to pass these things along :-)

Another cool weaving technique from Ginger in Peru

"These small pieces are the result of hours of work learning backstrap weaving, pick-up designs, tubular weaving and finally tubular weaving as it is attached to fabric. Our brains throbbed after our lessons."

Good job, Ginger!

Peruvian Weaver

This is just in from Ginger, who is studying textiles, weaving & indigenous practices somewhere in Peru (I should know). Her comment, "harder than it looks". Love the pattern being produced with great colors!
