Okay, so first I have to brag just a little because, well, I’m just so danged proud of these kids. It was an awesome day and we are so excited for them.
I’ve been continuing to wash the lamb’s fleece that I bought and spent some time playing with my new camera to take some fleecy beauty shots.
In other news, my drum carder arrived and we’ve been having great fun with it! My friend Jean came over last night to knit and play with fiber. It was a great evening; I always really enjoy her company.
So we started with a big bag of some kind of ratty looking fiber that had been washed and dried. It looked like this:
We ran it through the carder twice, after first opening the locks by hand so it would be easier for the carder to separate.
By the end of the night, I had three batts carded and we had made hardly a dent into the fiber supply.
And a bit of VM (vegetative matter) on the counter.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
