Fleece sampling time

Taking samples from my washed fleece and testing them with carding, combing , spinning and knitting.

I thought this would be a real bore but I'm actually enjoying it.
The difference in the yarn made with different spinning techniques and then in the knitting!
A person could go round in circles trying to decide how to use the lovely stuff.
Must try to take photos of different preps - but my photos are pretty bad - all because I've been too lazy to go to another room and plug the camera into a Mac where I could probably get a better result.
Well, I'll give that a try since seeing the differences in plain, undyed samples will be quite a challenge I expect.
