We started the week with a bonus - the annual fabric and yarn market at Beauvais sur Matha, where we all bought, buttons, fabric, yarn, trimmings and shawl pins.
Lots of knitting and crochet, loads of laughs, a bit of swimming, a few outings, masses to eat and a few glasses of wine - the perfect combination. Projects included Debbie Abrahams Mystery Blanket, Jane Crowfoot's Frida and Lily Pond, socks, various shawls, chunky aran and fairisle sweaters, hats and patchwork throws.
We went shopping in St Jean d'Angely, Cognac and Saintes
and Cognac tasting at Egreteau our local producer
Culli was busy on the lathe turning up more yarn bowls and serviette rings
The swop shop was opened at the beginning of the week and gave inspiration for some of the projects
A lovely relaxing week which was completed with Wendy's story telling.
