Valerie Zahm, owner of the The Knitting Bee LLC standing at a stone wall overlooking a golf course in upstate New York in fall. The trees are changing colors, but it is not peak season yet and there are pink flowers over her left shoulder. She's wearing a handknit short-sleeved Austin Tee in The Alpaca Yarn Company's Mariquita in Fig hand dyed colorway (mauve) cropped over a long-sleeve slate-colored Oxford dress. The sky is the perfect shade of blue with white fluffy clouds moving across with the crisp autumn breeze.
