I'll Give You Three Guesses...

... as to what I did last night...

Yes, that is a large shoebox overflowing with hand carded Rolags.  I was a little tired when I finally got home at 7:30pm so I decided to just sit and veg out... while carding and carding.  I finished prepping all of the Blue, Teal and Purple last night, the Yellow the night before, and the Lime Green is all that is left.

We have a nice big coffee table that makes an excellent work surface to hold all of my junk, having a warm propane fireplace nearby was a nice touch... and the Carding was an excellent way to unwind from the day.  In the second picture you can kind of see the slight variation in color of the rolags - the heathery blend worked out as planned!  I found that if I divided up the roving into darker and lighter portions that I could use a little of both in each of the rolags, and got a nice depth of colour.  Sorry I couldn't get any quality close ups.  It was after dark, and even with my Ott light, I couldn't get any true colour captures (I did try)
