Crochet has never been my friend. I love it, and I'm impressed as hell by people who can do it well, but I am definitely not one of them. The fabulous headwear above was crocheted by Cal Patch, who is one of the most charming women I've ever met. She designs clothes, she crochets, she spins, she teaches, she has a great dog, and she has a warm and open way about her. I would love to take a class from her. If anyone can teach me to crochet, I think she can! A link to her site is here.
The entire area of Washington County, NY is spectacularly beautiful. This is a shot of the main street in Salem, just east of Greenwich. The scent of the apples in the orchard as I drove along, and the fog off the fields...it's a little bit of northeastern heaven. There's so much more, and I'll share it in chunks over the next few days.
