More boxing than knitting

First, thank you all for your nice comments on my socks! I'm still feeling the euphoria from having learned new things and completed something I like 100%. I promptly went to my LYS to pick up more sock yarn, some for BF, because he asked for another pair of socks, he chose the yarn ( I actually forgot what it was, but should have some pictures this weekend). And some for me. More of the Nature's Palette, which has really grown on me after a short initial dislike. Their colors are just too pretty. This one is called orchid

I'm working on the BF socks right now but I won't be getting too much knitting done over the next couple of weeks as I'm making a whole bunch of these guys:

marbled paper covered boxes for a client. A few years back, I made my living as a bookbinder, and I still do some work here and there.

such lovely boxes! I had no idea that one could still make a living binding books in this day and age, I am impressed! And somewhat embarassed by my own ignorance :-).
