Work finished yesterday (yay). Smokey wants to spend a couple days on the North Shore this week, since our planned vacation there in August was sabotaged by his slowish recovery. And then on Friday…
Soxanne and I will be roomies at this weekend knitting retreat, and another woman from Knit Night Orphans will be attending, too. Last weekend I googled the site of the retreat…and gasped*.
Villa Maria Retreat Center is in Frontenac, MN, almost on Lake Pepin (if you are not familiar with the Midwest, that's where the Mississippi widens into a lake).
The guest teacher is Lucy Neatby, who happens to be one of my idols. I cannot wait!
* See what I did there? I broke my own rule about not stealing pictures from other sites. Bad me.
Edited to add:
** And DUH again. I read it as "prerogative", which I thought should be "perogative". "Pregorative" is definitely wrong. Thanks, Rebecca!
Wow that castle looks amazing! Nothing less would do for a knitter’s retreat….accent on the “treat”! hehehe. Hope you and Smokey have a great couple of days R&R. I know you’ll have loads of fun at the knitting retreat. Think of us less fortunate(sob,sob). I’ll be spinning and knitting and dreaming!
OMG look at that place! So glad you posted the borrowed picture.
That castle looks fabulous 🙂

Oooh, that looks WONDERFUL! Have fun — both on the North Shore and at Knitters’ Days!!
Hmmm–when I google “pregorative,” google immediately jumps to “Prerogative,” which is, of course, a real word. “Pregorative” also doesn’t appear in my on-board dictionary, which has so far managed to find all kinds of real, arcane words. I’ll consult my highest-powered authoritative sources later . . . . . 😉 But I think your original response was right: “pregorative” is a misspelling.
Here I was thinking pregorative was “written and drawn before the time of Edward Gorey.” I was getting ready to use it, all casual-like, in conversation.
Have fun! The castle and Lucy Neatby sound like a *totally* winning combination.
I’m glad I arrived late because I decided it was a typo/misspelling. *L*
