Fun at Nine Rubies

I had such a great time last Friday night at Nine Rubies' Local Designers Night.

It was so nice to meet fellow designer Hilary Smith Callis.  You may be familiar with her very successful Citron pattern, but her sweaters are absolutely gorgeous!  Cloudy Sunday and the Asteria Cardigan were very popular Friday night!

Lots of my local knitting friends stopped by and I really appreciated everyone's support.  Betsy even came wearing her Summer Wind!

It was also nice to meet other knitters who came to the event, such as Audry.  She even modeled her adorable giraffe hat pattern.

I love that my sister dragged brought her fiance to the event too.  Aren't they cute?!

And that pretty basket of Plucky Knitter Primo, well there were only 3 or 4 skeins left after the evening!  I came home with that gorgeous purple one in the back.

Thank you to everyone who came to the event, and especially to Saloni and Sudha from Nine Rubies for hosting us!

Fortunately, the horrible swelling of my mouth and cheek didn't happen til yesterday.  Update on that, to spare you all the fabulous dentist details is that the dentist did a minor procedure today to get the swelling to go down.  The fun part will be next week when there will be dental surgery once the swelling goes down.  Still feeling awful, but she said it will take a few days for the antibiotics to help the swelling go down.  Thank you guys for all the positive thoughts!

And look at that...an entire week of blogging! Woohoo!

Happy Knitting!
