I bought a pair of hand carders and a teeny pair of flick carders from a well known auction site the weekend before last.
I've been in a lather waiting for them to arrive… well they had, I just didn't have a clue they were here… Anyway I ditched all the other important stuff I had to do and sat down and carded some fleece, well quite alot of fleece…
I carded curly Valais Blacknosed sheep fleece, I carded caramel alpaca fleece, I even considered carding some black labrador… but drew a line.
Then I took that VBN fleece and spun it into some yarn on my very lovely drop spindle it is very satisfying. I then grabbed some of the stash of 2ply alpaca yarn that Emma left me to play with and whipped up a teeny weeny bootie, I will need to finish the pair obviously, It's so fwuffy and sooooft, I love it
