After lunch it was back to the crochet, sitting in the garden Carol took everyone through the techniques for working in the round and showed us how to make crochet bowls with beading and decorative edgings, competition for Culli's wooden bowls! Jacqui decided the chess set that he has just finished was in need of a few warmers, so crocheted a little bonnet, pompom supplied by Carol By the evening everyone had a healthy glow from the sun, after supper of salmon wrapped in parma ham with spinach and lentils and nectarines braised in cognac we sat around the table putting the world to rights. Conversations ranged from knitting, crochet, religion to sex and the wine flowed.
