We also had Annabelle's latest soft toy creations to keep us company........
On the last day Jane recited her wonderful summary of the week -
Sept 2021, Highland Fling
Good luck to Carol with her patient smiling face
Great chieftan of the knitting race
Above them all you take your place
Square, check or stripe
Well you are worthy of this praise
and no this is not hype
The keen knitters see their plan
Intarsia, mosaic, check and tartan
Their wool and needles poised to click
In time of need
Carol rushes to encourage and tick
so they succeed
Wendy - I’m working on it, but may need to sleep
Annabelle - it’s not perfect...but look at those sheep
Katrin - sampling and resampling with colours so bright
Marion - mastering Brioche at first try
Heather - Carol..why is it not right?
Jane - listening in and getting by!
Oh , I cannot finish this address
Without reference to the (Covid) test process
Says Wendy, “we just want to go home”
Katrin calm and clear
and Heather “I’m not moving till it’s done”
Whew won’t have to stay until next year!!
To our hosts our heartfelt thanks
A smoothly running machine with no (visible) clanks
Excellent food and care, pool and gin services, and dog sitting
A truly relaxing environment
Allowing us to concentrate on our crochet and knitting
What a great event.
Key phrases to take with us

FFS – finally finished something
Brioche – bark, burp, belch and fart
Too many treblesHere are a few pictures Carol and I took on our early morning rambles around the countryside
