Welcome to Carding for Colour with Katrina Stewart!
In this workshop, Katrina Stewart will be introducing us to the wonderful world of carding to create beautiful woollen-style fibre for spinning or felting. From batts to rolags to roving, Katrina will show us the many possibilities!
Throughout the videos, you’ll learn:
- Basic colour theory
- Multiple fibres and their characteristics
- Various carding equipment and tools
- Different styles of carded fibre
- Many demonstrations
Please look at the materials tab on the main page or the first lesson to find your workbook and the supplies needed for this course. SweetGeorgia Yarns supplies all of the tools needed from drum carders, hand carders and blending boards as well as fibre and mix-ins.

Embracing imperfection(in other words, trying really hard not to be grumpy about your inconsistent yarn).
This is my first spin in my life and actually I enjoyed it immensely. I couldn’t stop for 4 hours.

I spun some alpaca fiber into yarn 😍 so pretty! Next step – 2 ply it and then tackle warping (threading all the yarn through) my loom. ashford_wheels_looms glimakra.of.sweden #sosspinning #espinner3 …
I purchased a handmade suspended spindle for the first time in my life! Handmade wooden crafts make my heart sing.

If you’re wondering how textured yarns differ from art yarns… they don’t. All art yarns are stable, usable yarns that can add texture, however bold or subtle, to the cloth in which they’re used.
Over at the upcoming Spinning Textured Yarns, instructor Debbie Held @doodler01 will teach SOS spinners about spinning a variety of art yarn styles and have you coming away from the course with a new appreciation for these classic, textured yarns and their infinite potential. The yarns in this course are truly timeless and they’re presented in a skill-building, logical order that’s meant to inspire you in your own application. Visit the course page now to find the materials list to get your supplies ready for the lesson launch on June 7th!

April has been BUSY and I noticed that my monthly FOs tend to reflect how busy my work schedule is. My #freshstartheadband is my only FO for this month so far and it makes sense, but it`s funny how spot on it is! 🙈 Do you notice this with your knits also?
After finally finishing the Warm Neutrals pre-order I had a lot of other deadlines to meet. Finalising my advent colorways was a huge goal for me this month (which I finished! 🎉) along with some wholesale orders and getting the Wanderlust 2022 Favorites together (which are coming in May!). On top of that, my parents are visiting, there is school vacation, and we are taking a small trip to London. Luckily, I think I`ll redeem some knitting time while my parents are here and while we are on vacation, so it should balance a bit in the end! 😊

Together with a good set of hand carders and a flicker, a diz may be one of the cheapest and more useful fibre prep tools you can get. If I had to choose, I would go as far as having a set of hand carders and my set of dizzes as my only fibre tools. They are versatile and extremely compact.
New at the School today, Greta @gretacornejomakes talks about the wonders of this fibre prep tool at her new article "What is a Diz and Why Do You Need One?". Continue reading the full article (link in bio) at the School!

I have been learning about different ways of rearranging colors in fiber to produce different results. So that’s what is currently in progress here with another 4oz of merino in “Pink Elephant” by fiberlovediary.
Another new tool for me is a bobbin winder, which is fast and efficient! …
