A Little Spinning Time
So whenever I’m in a funk, I think “spinning will cheer me up.” I got out my Joy project and decided to set back off to work. This time I decided to take a few pictures of my hand carding as well. This is the first time I charged the card.
I just stroke the cards back and forth. Now with this one in particular. I think it’s a bit blended. I want to keep the individual colors with just a little blending, so I don’t just get orange. I want more like an orange sunset.
You see I don’t charge in the same order each time. I like to mix it up.
Way less blending. I only do 3 or 4 strokes.
Much better in my opinion. Blended, but keeping the colors separate.
This is a bit slower process because I need to at least do a little pre-drafting, which I don’t normally do, but this is merino top and combined with my carding the fibers get a bit clumped before I can get them out when spinning.
