Another day with Rocky – I have now learnt to use a carder. I have spent the last week spinning whenever I have had time. Mainly a relaxing activity, but interspersed with the f?*! word on occasion. It can be very frustrating during this learning stage. I rediscovered my bad temper a number of times – not attractive. Using carded fleece cut down on the ugly bits.
This is my first hank of yarn, washed and dried. I am feeling quite satisfied and proud and wanting to keep doing more.
While I carded away in the sunshine, Rocky worked on her tapestry which she is also studying through TAFE.
Her current assignment involves weaving curves. Southwest TAFE are renowned for the tapestry weaving course they offer and have been doing it for many years. It is also one of the courses they offer off campus.
