Knitting in my family

When my mom was little and hated knitting classes at school my great grandmother would tell her the story about how she also hated knitting when she was younger.
My great grandmother was born on 1901 and her mom and aunts teached her to knit, she would run away from home and hide between the corn plants, she would make a fire and cook them and eat them with chili.
She always said that she was grateful that her family taught her how to knit because when she was older she was able to earn her own money selling her knitting.
When my older sister was in school and my mom would do her homework (she also hated knitting class) my great grandmother always said "you have to learn how to knit, it will be useful someday".
I was not taught knitting on school (I'm younger and my school didn't have knitting classes) I learned to knit at home.
My grandmother can't see well but she still knits because she says that you don't need your eyes to knit.
So my family has a hate-love relationship with knitting

Handknitted 100% Peruvian Baby Alpaca Chullo (Chuyo)


100% handknitted, originally uploaded by fabrinico.

I handknitted this chullo using 100% Peruvian Baby Alpaca (No synthetics, no mixed fibers).
The luxurious 100% Baby Alpaca Yarn I used is from the largest and finest producer of alpaca fiber here in Peru.
Baby Alpaca yarn is heavenly soft, you have to feel it.

Cusco

I went to Cusco last week, it was sunny.
Cusco is a city in the Andes, in the South East of Peru.
It was the capitol city of the Inca Empire also known as "Tahuantinsuyo", Tahuantinsuyo means "four regions".
Cusco was in the middle of the four regions so the Incas believed that Cusco was the "belly button" of the World.
