snow day (very fitting to today) mill ends, locks, angelina


Chocolate silk, wool, soysilk, apalca.  so soft... I need to make more!

I'm really proud of this one, because it's actually worsted weight, and two ply.  Pretty much everything I spin is bulky...

Like these:


calling it "Homewrecker" because it was the batt that broke my carder... cottswold locks, merino, mohair, nylon


calling it Kermit.  it's already gone, so I don't remember the yardage, but it's bulky weight, cottswold and soysilk.

So, I know I'm not the original poster here, but I also have the kitten drum carder and I thought I would share a few pictures with you.  First of all, you should know that Ron who makes these is super awesome.  Great customer service.  I broke my carder the first week i had it.  You really CANT try to force anything through  or the wood can split.  He fixed it free of charge for me even though it was my error.  He also guarantees the workmanship so if there is a defect you're covered. 

Ok, pictures of the carder, sorry I didn't clean it all the way, and some batts that I made this weekend:

I've found that my cats love to play with anything related to spinning, fiber, and yarn.  I keep it all behind a closed door when I'm not there to supervise. Out of sight out of kitty minds Smiley

Hooray for fiber friday.  Beautiful yarns so far, and this bag above me is fantastic!

This one is some apalca I got in a wishlist swap last year.  I was waiting until i could card it easier.  It's blended with some peach colored Corriedale, bulky weight. It's called "Rustic Apalca"


this is what happens when you throw all of your scraps into the carder and then spin them up.  Scraps mixed with white mill ends and white "faux cashmere". It's called "Leftovers"


Here's a few more, sorry for the smaller pics, I'm at work and I don't have all of them with me.  The three that are 2-ply are merino, the singles is corriedale, all dyed by me!

everyone made some fantastic stuff this week! Welcome to all the new spinners!  I'm back at the wheel after a few months away due to my wedding and such.  I the past two weeks I've managed to:

1. buy a drum carder
2. break my wheel the same day the drum carder arrives
3. fix my wheel.
4 break my drum carder.

So, I'm good at breaking things, but i should have my carder back in a few days...

ok, so the yarn will be on the next post.

very nice fiber friday everyone!  sorry I haven't contributed in a while, I'm gearing up to start spinning again now that the wedding is over.  Plus I just bought a drum carder, so I'm going to need to stock my shop to pay for it!
