Postcard from Delhi

6 Sep

Greetings from India! I’m on a working vacation this week in textile paradise. In between stuffing my face with samosas and parathas, I spent a few hours yesterday wandering about the Qutb Minar complex.

It’s an amazing 12th century archeological site featuring the most amazing stone work I’ve ever seen. You’re not supposed to touch anything, but you can wander around at will and get up close to the various pillars, niches, and arches.

I’m hoping to use some of these motifs and textures in knitting patterns this winter.
