A little peak at me carding hand dyed wool batts on my fancy kitty drum carder...

Ron Anderson, the maker of the fancy kitty drum carder, asked for some customer photos to add to his website's scrapbook page.  It is also part of the requirements to be entered in his contest at the fancy kitty group on ravelry.  I normally hide from the camera, but I made an exception in this case and had my husband snap a few photos of me working with my drum carder.  The wool that I'm working with is some that I hand dyed in preparation for carding.  I plan to combine some of the carded colors later to make funky fun batts for felting and spinning.  I will also be selling some of the wool batts at my Etsy Fiber Shop so be on the lookout for them.

So here I am with my lovely new drum carder and yummy wool...




There's also a cute one of the baby, and I just had to share!


And Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!
(It is only fitting that I'm carding bright lime green wool in celebration of the festive day.)
