Jan & Feb Artists

January and February's featured knitters, Candelaria Pumacota and Hermelinda Ccalla Manzano, live on a peninsula in Lake Titicacca across from the city of Puno. A new road has made travel to this area easier, so we hope to visit this beautiful and tranquil area more often. Because of the travel time to Puno, this area is extremely rural, so knitting provides important extra income for ladies who spend much of their time tending their farms and families.
