7:35pm - Decide to cook supper. Rummage in freezer for something fast and delicious.

7:36pm - Decide to make Asian stir-fry. Read package instructions. Tablespoon of oil, high heat, pan. Frozen food into pan.

7:38pm - Pan starts to burn. Turn down heat. Put rice in microwave.

7:40pm - Pan no longer smoking, but food cold. Turn up heat.

7:42pm - Decide mushrooms in stir-fry look like bits of sliced leech. Pick out mushrooms. Ignore smell as pan starts burning.

7:44pm - Rice is finished. Burn hand taking bowl from microwave. Stir pan. Alarming smoke and burning smell coming from dinner. Turn on vent fan, keep stirring.

7:46pm - Decide dinner is hot. Divvy up rice and stir-fry. Lick tongs. Burnt. Throw entire dinner in trash can.

7:48pm - Open patio door and reassure alarmed-looking cats that everything is going as planned. Put OxyClean in pan to soak off 1/4" of burned soy sauce.

7:56pm - Put microwave dinner in oven.

Olympic Gear!

The best part of this is my new Olympic stitch markers. They are from the bead store down the street from where I live. They fit on sock needles! The bigger rings are for Clapotis though. Not bad for $11!

Stitch Markers!

Having successfully fed myself, I finally finished work and my last bit of preparation is to print out an article on the figure 8 cast on - and then go cast on! WHOO!!!

I know this is kind late but the Turkish Cast On is much easier and better looking than the figure 8

I have a tutorial on my blog if you want a peek :)

Good Luck!
