First carding

A couple of months ago, I bought a beautiful new Classic Carder. I did not want to use it until I had received a tutorial on correct usage. Whilst at Fibre East, I had a lovely lesson with the Classic Carder team, and now feel confident to use mine.
The photo above is of my very first rolled batts. The fleece is the grey Coloured Ryeland bought at Fibre East last time, stored washed in an old cotton pillowcase.

 The 'Fialka' for Sharon is finished. The knitting was done about ten days ago, then the blocking and taking of photos took a few more days. I hope Sharon likes it- I am really pleased with it.

The 'Summer is Coming' Mystery knit-a-long is growing. There are eight clues in all. The seventh clue was released yesterday. I have to admit that I have not caught up yet. It did not help that we were away for the week-end - The joyful catching up with our hosts severely curtailed knitting time!
