Get Ready

It's going to be a few days of the Minnesota Knitters Days Recap.

Villa Maria in Frontenac Minnesota used to be a girls boarding school. The accomodations are dorm-like rooms with twin beds and a sink in the room, community showers and restrooms, meals in the basement served cafeteria style out in the country. We were knitting so much that we did not get to take any walks on the property but I hear it is quite beautiful.

Our classroom is the top row of windows. Sue and I were lucky that our room was just down the hall from our knitting room. It came with a couple of asian beetles and a squeaky bed but as Sue put it "at least the squeak was from the bed and not a M-O-U-S-E.

We look pretty good after a weekend of knitting! I did something I generally don't do. I went to bed at a decent hour last night. Simply amazing!

Lake Pepin and the Mississippi River was our view from the classroom. On our way up on Friday, we drove along the River, it was a magnificent trip with the sun shining and the anticipation of what the weekend would bring.
