For my birthday, my mom gave me the best present in the world: a shopping spree at The Artful Ewe, a wonderful yarn and fiber shop in Port Gamble! I went crazy.
So, since a lot of the fiber was raw and un-carded, I’ve been learning how to card wool. I’ve been doing it as I spin, picking out a small piece of a color I like, carding it, and then spinning it, one at a time. I’ve also been using wire dog brushes instead of carders. They are much cheaper and work perfectly for my purposes.
So needless to say I’ve been having a blast playing with all this new and colorful fiber. This is my latest creation. (Also see the picture above)
