A trip to France

So we got back safe and sound (much to my relief, but I won’t go into that) and we had an amazing time with much laughter, amusement and celebratory activities. Ro (aka Novasteel) was a fabulous host, we learnt a lot, enjoyed lovely company, made some new Ravelry friends and were reacquainted with people who felt like old pals (Debbie from the Lot).

The stay was lovely, comfortable, apt with sheep and lambs in the fields around us, bunting was made, cakes were eaten, champagne drank, learnt new French words and peculiarities and also learnt never to order petit gris for lunch. We all managed to accomplish a significant amount of knitting (somehow through the haze) and I started and completed a project (which is now blocking and wound and cast on for 2nd project. I can’t wait until we are all reunited again, a retreat or two are in the pipeline and hoping that more people can come next time.


Here’s a few pics to give you a taste of how it was…
