Hey guys,

I was reading someone's blog the other day and it gave instructions for rolling hand carded "batts" into roving instead of into a rolag.  Do any of you know which blog this is?  It's one of the most recent posts within that particular blog.  It also has a black background. 

Thanks in advance!

that was also helpful.  I like both methods.  Off to try your way patchworkarmy!  I have a feeling that might help reduce the amount of fuzz everywhere?  Or is carding generally terrible fuzzy business?

Ah thats the exact way that I pull my hand cards into roving!

 I prefer to do it that way rather than spin rolags. I hate spinning rolags.

carding is pretty fuzzy business... but anyway you slice it, it's super fun to me! =0)
I don't care what form my fiber is in, so long as I can spin it up.  But at first, I found rolags to be a bit hard to grasp and understand. Just do what makes you happy!  Grin
