Carding beautiful batts.

I would have posted this yesterday, but, the printer wouldn't transfer the picture, I have a cold and I was getting ready for today, which is my Rose St. Artists' Market day for September.


I've drum carded each colour separately. My drum carder is not fine toothed, so it performs pretty well with these sorts of batts. Sometimes it would be nice for it to be finer for a better product, but for this purpose I think, they've turned out rather well!

If my head stops thumping and my body aching, I might just start spinning. I wonder how knitspingirl is going...........

they do look good carded up. Have you decided what to do with the black and brown?

Love your batts - that must have taken a lot of work to separate out the colours!
I've now spun mine up & am in the process of stash-diving for something to ply it with. I may not have enough purple ...
