I’m sure that any day you visit Carole Precious at Chassagne you will be inspired and charmed, both by the landscape and your host. The morning I went to pick up some pure Shetland yarn, summer thundershowers were rolling through with that rumbling that both lulls and urges you to shelter. As the rain started to pour down, Carole said, “When I was a child I always ran into the rain, not out of it!” The spirit of that sentiment captured my impression of the farm perfectly. Chassagne is a place that reminds you of the pleasures of a country lifestyle, where many pursuits are enjoyed with passion, determination and hard work.
