the ends of the earth: India snapshots

If you’ve been wondering why blog activity has been minimal/absent for the past month or so, here’s your answer. Not some top-secret knitting project–instead, I’ve been planning and then taking a trip. To INDIA!! Some friends asked us to attend their wedding, and we jumped at the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Given that India is almost as far away as you can travel without leaving the planet, we figured we should go for as long as possible, and managed to scrounge together nearly three weeks of time off. I did very little knitting (a few hours on the flights, but otherwise I was too busy or too bumped around–knitting while a car passenger was just not possible), but I did do some other cool stuff, like:

And take in some spectacular scenery!

On a more fiber related note, I also got to buy my first sari, to wear to the wedding. It was a bit confusing at first, but I think I managed to fold it on pretty well in the end:

I’ll be back later this week with some more run-of-the-mill posts, I have a bit of pre-trip finished knitting to brag about!
