Welcome to Hudson Valley Knits Podcast! Today I am podcasting during my hike up Anthony’s Nose (again). It was the perfect day for hiking and I found a fantastic new to me look out point which I end up podcasting from.

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

and there are some great rocks to sit on and knit 😉

My Knit Picks magnetic chart holder was indispensable on the windy mountaintop! I love this tool
Knit Picks magnetic board 4 thumbs up!
And here is what my daughter did when we got to the top
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.
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???
