Carding and spinning


It's been almost three years since I've carded any wool, but last week I picked up the carders and made rolags from the beautiful fleece that Jan sent me last year from her sheep. I love the feel of the wool with lanolin still in it. It spins so nicely and is much more forgiving than the slick merino roving I recently plied.

I'm trying to get back in shape - spinning-wise - before Penny and I go off on a spinning weekend together at the end of the month. (I told my mother Penny and I would be spinning for four days and she thought I said "spending." Not quite!)

*Spending your talent*

I'll say!!

Anyone would be exceedingly fortunate to receive one of your handcrafts.

Laura, that looks beautiful! Good job -- whenever we settle somewhere I want to pull out a fleece myself. I'm envious.
