I make it now!
Okay - sorry about the poor attempt to reference my favorite, still to this day, SNL clip.
But I make them now! I blogged a few posts ago about a batt that made me fall in love with all things wool. It only seemed appropriate that I eventually learn to do them myself. I purchased a used Strauch Petite drum carder on Ravelry about a week and a half ago. It came in a few days ago and I've been in love ever since. My first couple of batts were not overly colorful and didn't photograph well, so into my spinning pile they went.
However, the next 4 batts are tugging at my heart strings. They are fluffy, textured, colorful, soft and oh so lovely. I've already got more wool on the stove dying up in a variety of colors so I can card more batts. I can already tell, this is going to take up much of my time.
