Since The Mister had somewhere to go yesterday and the weather was still oddly warm, I took advantage and drug the carding stuff onto the deck to get some batts made.
I've been spinning this California Red for a while now from this fiber in hopes of turning them into some thick Croc socks for next winter. I sure didn't need them this winter.
I had this carded fluff all ready to go so.....
....in no time I had four batts made.
The fiber I have left to card is pretty pitiful but I may squeeze another batt or two out of it if I need it but that was for another day. Hopefully we'll have a few more nice days before the mosquitoes show up in force. I've already had my first bite of the year a few days ago and I am happy to say I killed that sucker dead, dead, dead. The nerve.
Right now I am concentrating on getting the spinning done for the Garter Squish so I packed up those batts to spin during the Tour. I hope I remember where I put them. I do tend to lose stuff like this.
And.......as for that trip to the frog pond-this monstrosity is now history. Holding handspun double is a BAD idea. I HATED working on it. I couldn't imagine slogging through a second sock so I killed it dead too. My other projects better watch out. I sense a theme here.
