Day 2 knitting workshop with Debbie Abrahams
Irene's friend Lena who lives not far from us in the Charente came along to join us for the day and brought along samples of her beautiful yarns that are naturally dyed from mushrooms. There are 100's of varieties of mushrooms here in the woods, mostly in the autumn but Lena manages to source them all year and creates the most fantastic colours with the dye.
Apero's in the courtyard with everyone glowing from the sun, followed by fish pie and plenty of wine and lively conversation.
This morning the sun is shining again and we are off to the market in St Jean d'Angely for a wander and a coffee and to buy some fresh seafood for lunch.
