La Ligua

Friday we went on a day trip with Julie, Asher and Liesl to La Ligua, a little town known for its knitted clothing. It's a couple hours north of here so we settled in for the drive. There were some beautiful things there, making me wish that I were a talented knitter, and I ended up buying a few things. I was hoping to find a long sweater-style jacket for me, as the winter coats here are expensive and not what I'm looking for, but the one that I really liked didn't fit. :( The shops are located on either side of the main street and I'd say they line the street for about a kilmetre or so, maybe a little less. It was fun going into the shops and seeing what they had to offer. Some of the stores had beautiful stuff, others had some nondescript stuff. The funniest things were the kids' sweaters with the off-make Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh and Spiderman designs on them; they just looked strange. I think the funniest, yet very typical, scene was the bags of avocados for sale in the window, along with the knitted sweaters.
