A Whole Lotta Knittin'

Actually, not. But, last night, between eating leftovers and doing two loads of laundry, VUBOQ cast on the afghan (all 145 stitches) and knit about 6 rows [maybe 7]. It's almost time to change to the MAIN COLOR. Excitement!

VUBOQ is not sure he is liking this afghan all that much. But, it's early. It's hard to tell. Maybe it will get more afghany as it gets longer. Stay tuned for more exciting developments ... and perhaps a photo that doesn't look like a big blob.

VUBOQ will be experimenting today (at work! *heh*) with the other yarn to see what size needles and how many stitches to cast on for a ribbed scarf. Fun. Times.

In other news ...

I'm thinking of pan frying a bunch of the squash I have for dinner tonight. Anyone know much about that? Like, can I use the corn flour I bought to make pupusas for breading? Do I need to dip the squash in egg first?

That's about it. More later. *smooches*


  1. i don't think you need to dip it in eggs first. eggs are only for "glossing" effect-- i think.

  2. hmmm i want to start knittin' again.

  3. Tomokito, I didn't know you started knitting to begin with. When was that?

  4. bala wala shi: Just spoke with a friend of mine who graduate from the American Culinary Institute (I think that's what it's called). He said yes to the egg. Dip the squash in the egg. Then, dip in the corn meal.

  5. hmm.. i thought that i just posted a comment but it's not appearing. ok. here it is again. thanks for the update. it's useful to know. but i have a question now. would you pls ask your friend when are the eggs necessary and when are they not. because i know that to fry fish you can coat it immediately with flour without eggs. maybe vegitables are more tender so they need to eggs to hold them together? if you ask, that would be very useful.
