There are always little bits and pieces left over when I spin, the big pieces of singles I ply a "leftover" yarn from, but these little scraps, what to do with them, I could not throw them away. So, with hand carders, bought second hand, I set out to card the little pieces. I de-twisted them and sorted them in small piles with nice colours, and it worked. Small rolags waiting to be spun. It was hard work carding it though, and the poor carders that have been idle and drying for years got a real workout. Ill show the finished yarn on monday, if it is done, chain plying to keep the colours separate I think.
