The Fancicard has arrived

My Pat Green Fancicard motorized carder came yesterday from Canada.  The Greens had to get it across the US border before the Olympics started up there.  Otherwise, I would have been waiting until after the games were over.

This is about all I've been able to do with it so far - unpack and read the directions.  I don't have a workspace yet for it, but hopefully will be able to do something about that this weekend.  I was a little disappointed the booklet didn't mention too much about alpaca fleece, but I'm sure there lots of places on the internet and YouTube to get some tips.  I've got lots of fleece right now to work with and I'm hoping to be able to make some nice batts and roving.  Stay tuned.
