dead space.


I tried to post an entry yesterday but for some reason couldn’t post pics so i held off. Above is the ram i carded on the new drum carder, browns and yellows although i have no idea what to do with it since yellow and i dont get along.

I managed to finish Stacy’s birthday presents in time for cake this evening, a calorimetry (pattern from knitty) out of hand spun hand carded hand dyed (yup thats right I have achieved nirvana) romney with angelina glitz, and a panta (craftster pattern) out of hand dyed hand spun farm wool.

Now I’ve come to understand that carding has magical effects for releiveing the tensions of reading and paper writing. So I’ve been kind of going to town and playing around with the stuff I have around the house. These batts are destined for others though there’s just too much yellow for me to want to work with it at the moment.

Now back to the socks of socktober.

Contemplating dying some themed fibre, I mean how much fun would that be.I’m getting a little sick of carding blue, just sayin.
