Our gracious host, Juanita, is very talented. One such talent is a style of knitting that does NOT use knitting needles, but only fingers and is very “rapido.” At our “Welcome Party,” she presented MsSardo (Patricia) with a recent sample of her knitting. See following . . .
So, the ladies wanted to know how to make such nice clothing so quickly. If you are interested, read on . . .
Juanita took the ladies on a shopping tour for inexpensive yarn in nearby Santa Ana. The shop was selling 4 skeins for about 100 pesos which is less than $10.00 USD. Here is the shop and the enthusiastic shoppers . . .
Once they selected their yarn, Juanita got right to down to business and showed Raquel (“compadre” of Jaunita) and Patricia (traveler extraordinaire) how to knit hats and capes without knitting needles.
In the meantime, “what are the boys” to do while “the girls” are learning a new skill? Well, we decided to get some ice cream at the local tourist “Italian Mouse” shop and then check out “the beach” for bare bottoms I think you will get “the picture” by scanning down . . .
And here we check out the bare bottoms checking out the beach (of Acapulco 🙂
You would think the ladies had enough by 5:00 PM or so, but they still checked out one last knitting shop before we headed home . . .
Another time, I will show you the “other side” of Juanita, the “construction boss,” and our new rental property under construction. Adios, from Apizaco, Tlaxcala, Mexico. Genuine-Tourist, reporting.
