So I've gotten LOTS of questions on how I card my batts.. mostly HOW do I fit as much fiber onto my drum as I do.. to get those HUGE batts!!
So this weekend I did a short technique demo on carding layers with my louet carder.
For me, carding is about layers.. it's like painting the fiber onto the drum. Even when I do more than 1 of the "same" batt or when I "encore" batts (recreate previously carded batts) they are always unique- because I can never "paint" the fiber exactly the same way. I may use the same fibers... in the same colors.. but they will always be placed slightly different on the drum.
PLEASE no teasing on my sweatpants and "IL" trucker hat.. It was Sunday morning! LOL!!! I am proudly wearing my "daily dose of fiber" ravelry shirt! YAY ravelry!
I've gotten some questions on how to "process" a batt for spinning.. so I'll do a few quickie demo's on pulling roving from a batt this weekend (without using a diz). I'll try to get one using diz as well if I have time!
My next technique video will be (core)spinning with locks. I hope to have that up early next month!!
