I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

day four

No news from Amy Singer / knitty.

Here's what we did last Saturday. It was a gorgeous day, and we went to an apple orchard outside of Albany.



We go apple picking there every year, and I have never seen the apples quite like this:



Then we went over to the farm compound, where they had a fall festival with all local folks displaying their wares, food, and animals:


Their owner also had some lovely alpaca yarn, but I resisted. I asked her and she said she will be at the NYS sheep and wool fest next month.


Here's just a few more shots of the bounty on display:







It was really cool to see so many local vendors, some of them promoting the 100 mile diet, some of them supporting sustainable living.
Before you we go back to our regularly scheduled knitting, I would like to encourage you to go to this site: http://www.climatecrisiscoalition.org/

'Til tomorrow!

Ron and I are going to an apple orchard and fall festival today. I hope I get as lovely a collection of photos as you did.

Those fresh apples make the best apple butter. The fall colors are beautiful!
