Nashville Weekend

Hello Friends!

I just realized my last post was published very late! Sorry I really thought I had hit the publish button a week ago but turns out I did not.  Guess the saying better late than never is right.  I have to let you guys know about my trip to Nashville this weekend. It was amazing and so much fun. My daughter and I traveled to Nashville which is about 2.5 hours away.  We both had plans of shopping. I visited CraftSouth and bought some beautiful fabric and yarn. The yarn is a naturally dyed sport weight merino.  I love it and hope to knit it into a large shawl for the winter.  I will share the pattern when I start it. 
The shop is a beautiful mash up of needlework, fabrics and knitting/crochet.  There were too many fabrics to choose just one but with my budget at hand I chose just one for now.  The shop did feature Alabama Chanin designs and they carry her organic knit fabrics. There is a list of classes they offer on their website. '


    Our next stop was to the Super Summer Knitogether Open Market at Scarritt Bennett.  The market had so many fiber arts vendors selling anything from handmade soaps, yarn, roving, and fleeces.  I managed to get some yarn for a future sweater which I am excited to start soon! Winter is coming...LOL.   

   The last stop of the day was to the used book store which my daughter loves to read so she found a new series to read.  We had a long day of traveling together but the best part of the trip is the memories we make together.  We talk and laugh in the car.  Oh, we even bought Starbucks coffee in this summer heat!  It was delicious.  

Have a Blessed Week
