Anyhoo... last week I did get a chance to play with my new toy. Ron at Fancy Kitty had a little contest on our Ravelry group & I won! And I won BIG! I won a motor kit for my drum carder! I couldn't believe it, still can't. What an awesome prize. Ron has wonderful handcrafted products, all of them that I've used so far. I have a collection of his smoothie crochet hooks & my kitty drum carder. Truly superior quality & craftsmanship. And I just can't tell you how awesome the motor for my drum carder is. What a difference! I can put batts together much more quickly, & do other stuff while batt creating if I want. :)
These are the first batts that I created with the motor going. First I blended some purple mystery wool with some purple bamboo, and the same thing with the green, mystery wool & bamboo to match. Once I got those through the carder twice, just to make sure it was blended really well... I then sent it through the carder one more time to make the blended purple to green batts. The purple blends into the green, so I am hoping to get a nice graduated yarn. And I'm really curious to see how the bamboo/wool blend spins. I found that I'm not too crazy about spinning 100% bamboo, I'm hoping this will be much better.
WC Merchantile. This is some lovely, soft, squishy fiber. If it wouldn't ruin it I'd use this stuff for a pillow to sleep on! LOL
Jessi purchased a while back I went to check it out. And I found this little Litter Locker at the Dr's Foster and Smith website.
Speaking of litter. Jazzy is trying a new one. Worlds Best Cat Litter. It's made from corn. She just started using it yesterday, but so far we both like it very much. It's a little more expensive than the regular clumping litter we've been using but it's supposed to last longer because it clumps better. One bag should last a month for one cat using it. I can tell you that it's much less dusty, it does clump really good, & we haven't had any unpleasant odors at all, even when scooping it out. That's a really good thing!
