At Random

I have had a serious case of castonitis over the last week and have started several projects. Currently, I have six active WIP's on my needles/hook. So, of necessity, the progress is slow and I have no recent photos of these WIPs to share.
Cooking is not my forte. I tend to stick to the dishes I know and cook them over and over again. (have not had any complaints from my family yet :)). So, it is a huge deal when I try something new. Last week, I got to cook a pot chicken roast or Murghe Musallam (urdu for whole chicken). It turned out ok and I was excited enough to take a pic.
I had a wonderful surprise today. I got a package from a Canadian friend at forum sporum (ravelry).

She sent me a drop spindle kit with a gorgeous wooden spindle and lovely rovings in two awesome colors. Now, I am itching to try out my new spindle :)


  1. A wonderful gift,and the colours seems to b great too.Go on spinning.
    Have a nice day

  2. The chicken looks lovely. Probably your boring dishes would be interesting to those of us on other continents! I had Spanish stew over the weekend and really enjoyed the way they seasoned it. More ideas for future dishes!

  3. Wow, what an amazing gift!! I am eager to see the yarn you spin now. The chicken looks great!

  4. I am the same way about cooking! Very pretty roving!

  5. How did I miss this post? LOL. The chicken looks delish! And of course I am really looking forward to seeing all the upcoming spinning!
