Been spending some quality time with the carder lately.
Catching up on processing fleece now that summer seems to be retreating.
At least rainy weather is good for something!
And some Edgar/Griff-
Thought it was probably a good idea to move some fiber down the pipeline, as I’ll probably have some new fall fleeces entering the wool pool soon!
Oh, I did a little bit of blending, too-
Here is Chone all gussied up with some dyed Romney and mohair
And I finally have a picture of Vintage Mood that looks like something!
Just a few more inches to go-
I think it’s going to be a nice wardobe addition- and mighty toasty!
It all looks lovely! Your drum carder does a much better job than mine — or I don’t know what I’m doing!
MIchelle- it might be a matter of adjusting the drums for the right amount of clearance. Also, I usually have to card twice from washed fleece to get it the prep this even-
You do a lovely job of carding your wool Denise.
I wish I was such a gifted sweater knitter as you are because I would sure love one about now!!
Thanks Jody- I really love this carder. It really does a nice job. This sweater is actually a really interesting but simple pattern (and no sewing up!) called “Vintage Mood”. Comes together pretty fast in bulky yarn, too!
Pretty, pretty roving and that sweater is SWEET! T.
Hi Denise! It was great meeting you & Shimon today. Great banana bread! I LOVE your vest!!!
