Something Else I've Been Working On

For the last couple of weeks, I've been working on getting a gray Corriedale fleece carded. Yes, it really is a true silvery gray! I've found that I can flick open the locks in the evening in front of the TV and you can see a basket of the flicked locks in the chair behind the drum carder. Then, I can send the wool through the carder at random times during the day: while I'm on the phone, while I'm waiting for dinner to cook, while I'm waiting for Caleb to finish eating his dinner. At this point I'm just getting it carded up. Once I have it all in batts, I will sort the batts into light, medium, and dark gray's. Then I'll recard the lights and darks together and mix up the mediums a bit so I have a fairly even color. I've got enough for a sweater set aside to card up, but I'm not entirely sure of what kind of design I want - I've got a couple of ideas though.

WOW! I had a silver-grey one time, but it was darker ... that is an awesome color.

I like the idea of flicking in front of the TV ... I spend way too much time there as it is.

I had wondered what you had been up to, carding wise.

Did you get that a MDS&W?
