PIGS and Eggs

While pulling out my stash for Flash Your Stash Day, I found a Pig (project in grocery sack).  A Noro Striped Scarf a la Jared Flood (Ravelry link)  that I had started ages ago.  I'm using the Noro Silk Garden Chunky and bigger needles. The main colorway I'm using is color 11, and I'm currently using colorway 5 with it. I don't know what the first colorway I used with 11 is.  I've long since lost the ball band, and never entered the project in my Ravelry project page.  I'm finding the k1,p1 very soothing and I'm easily amused by self-striping yarn.

Today's culinary adventure took me to Scotland.  Scotch Eggs . The recipe is from  I baked the eggs in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes instead of frying.  Even with baking instead of frying, it's not the healthiest recipe, but it is oh so good!

Ok, so I know they're from Canada but it's good music. If you're a traditionalist, how about Scottish Moods.  Happier?

Drive By Posting

I haven't abandoned the blog. I just got sidelined with a bit of a cold and then a couple of bad headaches.

April 1st was Flash Your Stash day.  Dutifully, I opened up all my storage totes and laid everything out on the floor.  First side by side.Then, after realizing that there wasn't enough room, one nestled on top of another. Again, not enough room.  So, towards the back they ended up 2 and 3 deep.
