Poms and Purls

First off, I want everyone to know that I have been reading your blogs, but Blogger won't let me post my comments. Grrr..... Now onward.

Ok now, am I the only little old Southern Girl that's never eaten a pomegranate? They were on sale at the store, so I said, "why not". It took a while to get the hang of seeding that dang crazy looking thing, but finally I got it done. You seed the fruit in a bowl of water and scoop off the pieces that float to the top. Reminded me of changing the goldfish bowl, chasing those little white pieces of stuff. Anyway, I take a bite of one of the seed thingies, and it tasted marvy, but it's got a little hard thing in it. Hmmm....I'm new to this fruit, so then I have to go look up on the "Internets" as to whether I am supposed to eat that little hard thing. Yes, it is edible and crunchy and good fiber. I feel quite adventurous for trying something new. My kitchen suffered the most, it looked like the set of a Freddy Krueger movie, but that's another story.


I know I said that I would not bore you with my knitting, but the yarn that I am using for my first project is so pretty, I just had to show you. Pay no attention to the dropped stitches. I'm still learning.


Hopefully, later this month this will be a full fledged scarf. I know that a scarf is what everyone starts on, but it's good practice. Hope you like it. Take care and let's go do something creative!

I'm so proud of you for learning to knit! I've tried countless times and can knit... but I can't purl. I blame the nerve damage in my left arm. Yeah, that's it. ;) I, for one, look forward to seeing your knitting goodness!

Now I think I might need to be brave and try a pomegranate, too. They've always scared me even though I do enjoy pom-flavored things. :)

hi susan~
I love the fall season and I know it's fall when the pomegranates are on sale! I love them. They are so fun!
Try putting some in a spinach salad some couscous or even mixed in with some yogurt. They are a pain to seed and it does make a bloody mess of the kitchen but it's worth it.
