Sometimes Things Happen for a Good Reason

What a morning! I got up at 6:30 am and had a boring low carb breakfast. Then my mind began to work on thoughts of fiber fun. Hmmmm.....first I threw in a load of laundry. Next I hauled out the carding machine and decided to process the one third of the Jacob fleece I managed not to felt. As you can see, I had a very productive morning. I even managed to iron several of my shirts for the week.

Here's the Jacob after I teased it to get it ready for the carder for its first pass.

The second pass through the carder went smoothly.

It seemed to come off the roller quite nicely.

Voila.....finished enough fiber to make a few small items! I've decided I'm glad I had only one third of a fleece to process. The Jacob is ready for the wheel.

Be careful not to get Benny's tail caught in the carder!
