Hand Carders & Rolags
OK... I'm sure that I'm not doing it just right, but the idea has been gotten and well, here we go. First go at using hand carder, ever!
A bit blurry, but getting there...
And wow... that didn't turn out quite like it should. But seriously, first attempt at making a rolag ever!! Give me a break.. at least for now hahaha.
Better!! Definitely getting there.. thank you knitting needle of greater size, you have helped me achieve a much prettier rolag.
Here is my first box of rolags... and well, they kind of out grew it.
So, I found a bigger box!!! And well, I have decided to start spinning.. and being the first time at spinning from a rolag.. ugh, que the swearing I'm sure. I will definitely post a pic of that yarn.. even if it's shameful and embarrassing hahaha.
And this is what I have left over! Depending on how the spinning turns out and how much yarn I manage to get from it.. I may just have to do a little something different with this batch.
