Had so much fun yesterday carding up roving from my swap partner, that I thought I would do a new one for me.

84 views and no comments??  Huh

I'm loving the way it is spinning up.  it's BFL with mill end roving carded in.  I may be able to 3-ply or cable it

Thanks folks!!  My ego feels better now!

The batts are about 4 oz, if I double ply, it should be sock weight and more than enough for a pair of socks, although mittens might be a better choice because I left some grease in the BFL.

Thanks!!
