Nashville – we love you!
The dust has mostly settled, the pups have been cuddled, the suitcases have been mostly unpacked and the biscuit detox has begun!
Back at the barn, we are continuing to unpack, ship classics and get ready for some fun things coming next week. But, first, thank you. THANK YOU.
Stitches South was special because of all the friendship and kindness you brought with you. Even if you weren’t able to physically get to Nashville, you were road trippin’ with us. You took the time to post wonderful reports of your road trip knitting or how your life might have gotten in the way of actual yardage and were always there to cheer each other (and us) on. We loved having you in the back seat of our virtual station wagon!
To all those who brought us treats, you are the fuel that kept us going! The chocolates, chips, nuts, biscuits (see above), baked goods, beverages, (coffee, tea & adult) and even some super interesting jerky (a huge hit with the fellas!), we loved it all. I will have to do some double time on the treadmill this next week, but it was so worth it! You guys are the absolute best.
But, most of all, thank you for your enthusiasm and energy. We loved helping with your project planning and finding your personal colors. Thank you for every hug, every group photo and for being so warm and sweet to our Dad. This was his very first Stitches trip with us and I think he was a bit overwhelmed. But, so many of you took the time to chat with him and make him feel welcome. He sure does love knitters – and so do we!
You guys are the best. Ever. A zillion thank you hugs to everybody.
