Tomas' Fruit Salad

"Tomas' bought a wax-paper cone filled with diced mango, papaya, orange, and shaved coconut. He sprinkled chili pepper over it and ate the tart cubes with a toothpick."
From "The Hummingbird's Daughter" by Luis Alberto Urrea.

The Woven Art Book Club met this past Sunday to discuss the above mentioned book. In addition to the fruit salad, Marge brought pig cookies, using a borrowed cookie cutter from Lopez bakery. We had a great discussion, and most agreed it is a great book. One member said she began to re-read it as soon as she finished the last page.

Important note to the monthly stitch-alongers. Angie noticed a mistake in the February square. Line 13 has an ommission. Here is the correction:

Row 13: (K1, P1) 2x, K3, *K4, yo,ssk, yo (sl 1-k2tog-psso), yo, K2tog, yo, K3*, K4, K2, (P1, K1) 2x

P.S. Thank you Angie!!

Thanks for lending me that book! I'm going to wait to start it when I feel a little better. Right now I think I am going to go curl up with March's stich challenge and watch another movie. :)
