Meet the newest member of the OnTheRound Team! This is my Fancy Kitty Kitten Drum carder (available for sale here). This beautiful carder was handmade using 100% North American red oak hardwood and she is a beauty!
I've had my carder for a couple of weeks now and every batt I make is just as fun as the first! Before I got my carder I was hand carding rolags- a tedious task for someone to loves to blend. Before it would take me an entire days work to card and spin- now I can card and spin up to 5 skeins in a day!
Now thanks to my Fancy Kitty I can crank (pun intended) out lots of fun batts filled with fabulous fibers and good intentions.
Currently I'm working with merino, rambouillet, border leicester & cormo locks, super wash blue faced laicester, a few Maine wools, a little bamboo, and a lot of mylar for sparkle. Plus, I've got new fibers coming in ever day!
And with that, i will leave you with a little sneak peak of a couple of treats that I made last night. These Positive Vibrations Batts willl be available in my shop later today.

I'm off to card!
Be well, be positive.
