Amazon has Tuesday as the release date for Natalie's new book. I think Rusty pre-ordered mine directly from Alabama Chanin, though, and I think they're prepping those shipments now. Hopefully, in-hand sometime next week! Kate saw The Decemberists in Milwaukee just last week. She'd seen them a few years ago and always considered it one of the best concerts she'd ever seen; and the current show was just as good. It would be fun to get a pedi together. Nice to think about spending some time with you! ;) knitting (and life) (and often photography) (and sometimes what I'm cooking) blog: knitorious
