The Hanks Question of the Week

Would you believe it's been almost one year? Just about one week shy! Wait, maybe I can find a photo of opening day...

Carpe yarn

Anyway... we've been here one year! What does that have to do with the Question of the Week...? We'd love to hear some of your favorite things that have happened in our shop in the last year! Has anything happened in the last year that has brought a smile to your face?

Just seeing you guys whenever I come in brings a smile to my face ...

Sleepovers! They were the most fun ever. (And a great idea, too.)

I hardly even know where to start, so consider this the first answer in a few answers I'll type up today.

The wonderful, amazing, funny, talented, complicated, beautiful people we have met in the last year... the slumber parties... the times people stop by just to hang out... our classes, which are always a blast... people who are traveling and say "I heard about you on Ravelry!"... birthday parties, both in and outside of the shop... everyone who helped us before we opened (we couldn't have done it without you!)... other shop owners who have been so welcoming and so generous with their advice and their shoulders... new knitters, crocheters, and spinners! Love the newbies!... a customer and friend sticking me with my epi-pen and taking me to the ER while our teacher finished her class and shut the shop... the UF knitting circle meeting with us over the summer... our Friday night and Sunday afternoon groups... wonderful people who bring us cookies, fudge, mead, wine, breads, coffee, many teas, and all sorts of other snacky things... people who have done shop samples for us... people who have not only traveled to see our shop (from Jacksonville, Louisiana, North Carolina, and more) but have traveled to see us *more than once*!... these are just the first of the things that stick out in my pre-coffeed state this morning.

It's been an amazing year, folks. THANK YOU!

Yarn. Heh.

Especially that yarn that was in four piles when I was done with it. That made my day a good one. *winks*
