Quietly Working Away

I think I've mentioned that I've been working on another book. I was supposed to turn in the manuscript to Interweave last week but I discovered some calculation errors and have been busy with a calculator, pencil, and very large eraser. I'm not at liberty to talk about the book until it is officially announced in August, but I will show you some of the knitting just to prove I haven't been idle. How's that for evasive?



And here's another thing I'm excited about. I recently subscribed to Door-to-Door Organics and every Friday a box of fruit and vegetables is delivered to my door.



I'm sure it's a bit more expensive than buying the same produce at the supermarket, but it's forcing us to eat a healthier and more varied diet. Last week we got kale, bok choy, lettuce, leeks, tomatoes, green pepper, apples, peaches, blueberries, and oranges. The bok choy threw me for a bit of a loop but I looked up recipes on the web and ended up putting it in a stir-fry with garlic and ginger. Yum. We've been having some pretty amazing salads, too.

Your stack made me smile! All I have to show for the last three months is one (finally) finished pair of socks, a half done sweater, a catnip mouse, and two new WIPs- socks and a KnitTit (from Knitty) for a friend.(By the way, check these out. They are wonderful smiles for post breast cancer surgery patients!)

My husband and I have the same fruit & vegetables delivery service in Boston via Boston Organics. It's really broadening our horizons in terms of cooking (we got these huge watermelon radishes and were very confused!). Enjoy your box!
