Today, two representatives of the Kankuamo (a native american community) came to our school.
Someone asked about the bags (mochilas) they were wearing, and the woman explained that when they knit, they're actually "writing". She said that their feelings get into their knitting (that's why they don't knit while feeling angry).
She also said that knitting a bag is like the creation of the universe (according to their beliefs), so, they start from the bottom of the bag...
Interesting!... isn't it?
