I had plans to attend "The Pleasant Spinners" potluck gathering on Sunday and wanted to take with me some of the Border Leicester Cross fleece that I had been working with lately. I had used all of the carded fleece that I had when weaving the mat, so needed to pick and card some more of it.
For some reason, I had this thought that I might have better success with pulling the roving through the diz IF the fleece were carded a few more times. Whatever the reason, it worked MUCH better the 1st time I tried it on Sunday morning. I had run the fleece through the carder 4 times rather than the normal (for me) 2. After being more successful pulling the roving through the diz, PLUS after spinning it and finding it spin "like butta", I have now learned more about using my drum carder. What I thought was a nice job carding before, was only "adequate"........in this case, more WAS better. ;)
