Are you familiar with Smartwool? They are a Steamboat Springs based company who makes wool clothing that is super warm and super soft. Not itchy like most wool clothing.
This weekend, they had their sample sale (which included several other vendors such as Simple, Roxy, Quicksilver and some others I had never heard of before). Lucky for me- they sold half of the stuff here in Boulder and the other half in Steamboat Springs (3-4 hours away).
Here is how it went down:
20 minutes of waiting to get in + hordes of people + $28 = 7 pairs of Smartwool socks
See? I even got several pairs of "high performance socks" so my poor little feets won't have to be cold when we go camping next year. That, and I will have the appropriate sleeping bag.
In addition to finding the best socks ever- I also processed apples this weekend.
Remember when I said I went apple picking? Well here is what we got.
About 35 lbs of apples. Crazy.
From those apples I made 12 pints of applesauce, 2 cups of dried apples, and from the peelings, I made 20 1/2 pints of Apple Pie Jelly. My hands are stained a nice brown/red from the apple peels. Seriously.
Details on the apple jelly and dried apples to come.
