Thank you!  I haven't made a new ATC in ages.  Fun to see these again.  Maybe it'll get my creative juices flowing.

Thanks!  Yes, it is so much fun, and I love that it is very portable.  I went up to a lodge on Lake Superior for a long weekend and took the board and some scraps of wool with me.  Blended up lots of cool stuff, and people were very curious to know what I was doing.

My husband and son gave me a Fancy Kitty fiber blending board for my birthday, and today was the first time I tried it out.  I took every little greenish scrap of wool I could find in my stash and blended them.  It's mostly merino and corriedale but also a bit of mohair.  I like how it turned out!  I will have to finish up the yarn I'm currently spinning so I can see how this spins up!  A drum carder was really out of my budget range, and I think this board will be great for my blending purposes, and it's so portable too!



*Update* I finished the yarn -- here it is!  101 yards.  I named it Green Giant because it's a big, bulky corespun.  It's a bit overspun, but very soft.  I know I should run the core yarn through in the opposite direction before corespinning in order to get a really balanced yarn, but I was WAY too impatient to see how the colors would turn out to do that!
