In the left cooooorner, looong and strong yearling mohair, in the right coooorner crimmmpy silver romney.... Are you reaaaaadddaaaayyyyy to start caaaaarrrddding?! I think I spent to much time turning the crank today.
I did approx 20% mohair to 80% romney but who's counting? This big huge puff of batts:
will end up being a pair of socks for my Gramps in New Hampshire. I hope I blended it all enough. I carded the fibers seperately then scrunched it all together over and over and carded a couple more times. I might card it all one more time before I spin it but my shoulder just couldn't take any more today.
I had to take out the facing of the Hardangervidda for Dan. I reduced the number of sts by about 10% and reknit it in 1x1 rib on smaller needles to bring it in some. Worked like a charm.
Daniel's Factoid: Daniel's tired of doing the factoids already! lol. Seriously... that's his factoid for today. He'd rather be a guest speaker when the urge hits him. Okee dokee, buddy. Too much pressure I guess.
