Lacy Baktus

It has been so hot that my knitting has slowed considerably. But I finished a lacy baktus and it is modelled here by its recipient. The order of photos is: 1. Looking at the baktus. 2. Demonstrating the manly way to wear the lacy baktus. 3 & 4. Demonstrating the 'high street' way of wearing it.

Traditional life in Kochkor in Kyrgyzstan.

We saw traditional felt making in Kyrgyzstan and I added it to the other blog.

Some crafty things in Kyrgyzstan

I am still mainly blogging over here, but I have another post of crafty stuff coming up.
