I’ve been playing on the drum carder again!
One of the items I bought at the fiber festival in Greencastle this year was (another) Card It Up kit from Hello Purl. It had four ounces of a variety of fibers (finn, romney, targhee, angelina, bamboo, faux cashmere, milk fiber, silk noil and silk thrums) in red, oranges and yellow.
I added to that some red merino, yellow merino, yellow faux cashmere and yellow silk. I also had some orange angora but totally forgot about it until it was too late.
Short story is I split the fibers up into three equal piles and carded each pile. Two passes through the drum carder (my friend’s Fancy Kitten) and painted the fiber directly onto the big drum. However, this required a blood sacrifice.
And now I’ll just leave you with a bunch of eye candy photos!
