Too Beautiful Outside

I really wanted to stay home and knit all day. It has been a while since I just relaxed and knit. Problem was it was so beautiful out, that I would be a fool to stay indoors. So, my daughter and I went hiking. I live in the Hudson Valley in NY and there are some great hiking trails. The mountain we went up today is called Anthony’s Nose. The view from the top is breathtaking

My Knit Picks magnetic chart holder was indispensable on the windy mountaintop! I love this tool

It was a great day all around, but I am very tired now. I took some great shots of my Luskentyre in the sunlight and some of the Alice Starmore yarns I carried up in my back pack also looked so beautiful in the sunlight I just have to share them here.

Pebble Beach just glowed!

Clover is definitely a favorite. Just gorgeous!

Spindrift has an understated elegance to it. A perfect backdrop.

 

Limpet

The Limpet showed the most dramatic change in the sunlight. This color would be great for any of Alice’s solid color sweaters.

Here is my daughter and I. I told her I wanted to take one of those facebook pictures that I see on her page all the time. Instead I got this “Mom you are so weird” look. Sigh…..

 

Mom, you are so weird. Can't we just keep hiking???

  1. What a lovely day you and your daugther had!!! Luskentyre and the AS yarns are inspired by nature and you can really see it when you take them out in the daylight.
    Clover and Limpet are among my favourites too.

  2. It looks so pretty over there.

    Good to see someone else carry dozens of balls of yarn with them, wherever they go 😉 The family doesn’t understand that I Love sweaters and Fair Isle.

  3. Wow, what a gorgeous place to knit and hang out with your daughter.

    You are a brave knitter, I only take sock knitting with me when I go on a walk. Your Luskentyre is beautiful so far.
