That is what goes on, almost everytime a new person learns how to spin. The new spinner's goal is usually to spin even, fine yarn. The kind they dream of putting in a knitted/crocheted sweater, shawl or even a woven suit. What they get, is for a designer hat or scarf, but they think it is for the garbage can. :)
The new person will practice and practice and will meet their goal. Gorgeous items will show up for show-n-tell and all will oooo and ahhhhh. Then the spinner says, "Self, let's do some bulky yarn now, or some single bulky or even some of the art yarn, you did it before." Then starts the learning, again. And you realize the experienced spinner from years ago is RIGHT! You cannot do it! So, you start practicing the art yarn concept. Sometimes you even have to take a class to learn it. Well, learning or re-learning art yarn has been one of my goals over the last few years. Also, wanting to spin a bulky single. I am getting there.
All of this to say, here is a headband that I designed and knitted out of a single ply, bulky handspun yarn. Then I embellished it with some 2 ply worsted weight handspun and some bulky single handspun yarn.
Back to the red batts from an earlier post. I decided I wanted to see what would happen if I lightly blended the batt with some black roving. So I pulled apart one of my red batts and made small enough pieces to feed onto the drum carder, again.
Then, after there was a layer of red on the carder, I broke off small amounts of black and fed that to the carder. I continued to feed a red layer and then a black layer. Eventually, I couldn't feed anymore onto the carder.
So, I gently pulled the batt off the large drum of the carder. It fluffed up, many times it size and I could see the layers! It was so cool. You can see the layers here, if you look closely. It looks like a many layered sandwich.
The next step will be to make the batt a roving. Watch for it. :)
