Here's the view from my table (right behind me was the refreshment table -- lucky me!). On the left you can see Carrie wearing her gorgeous Fiar infinity scarf, and the head poking up in the middle of the photo is Susan, whom I had the pleasure of meeting last year.
Here is Christina, a local knitter who also works at Nine Rubies. I had a great time chatting with her about her fantastic shawl, traveling with young'uns, and life in general. For some reason, we also wanted the foam head sporting the bulky-weight Nola in our photo as well.
Another featured designer of the night was Andrea of AG mode, a super sweet lady who makes magic with Tunisian crochet!
Carrie and Romi smiled for the Hipstamatic...
And Romi and I took a photo of each other taking a photo of each other. Again.
And then I said, "Ok, everyone make a funny face!" After the photo was taken, I wondered aloud if I was the only one who had actually done it and everyone laughed and I thought I heard someone say that I may be right. But I thought they were joking. Guess not.
It was a wonderful, wonderful evening, and I'd like to say a huge thanks to the fantastic Nine Rubies staff for hosting (I really love those ladies), to Sophy for helping me set up and for bringing me wine, and to all the lovely local knitters who came by.
