English in between today!
Nu är det vår! Jag har tagit fram kardmaskinen! Posten, denna fortfarande fungerande institution (men hur länge till månne den gör det?), har hämtat min nya palett från Danmark. Jag köpte fibrerna av Renee Darley.
It's spring! I have taken the drumcarder from the closet! The postal service is still working (but for how long, I wonder?), so I got my new palette from Denmark. I bought the fibers from Renee Darley.
The wool is longwool, and the white fibers are Tencel. I got some Tencel from Marie a few months ago, and was happily supriced by how easily it blends with wool, and how soft even coarse wool feels when mixed with Tencel.
Det här är min gamla trotjänare, köpt i slutet på 90-talet. Åh så mycket ull, angora, hundhår och alpacka jag har kardat med denna Louet elkardmaskin! Den är lite trött, men fungerar fortfarande utmärkt. Trimbordet har också varit i yrkesbruk. Jag var hundfrisör på "fritiden" i tjugo år.
This is my faithful old servant, bought at the end of the '90s. I have carded so much wool, angora, dog hair and alpaca with this Louet electric drumcarder! It's a bit tired, but still works very well. The grooming table has also been in professional use. I was a dog groomer for twenty years in my "spare time".
And this is Epiphyllum, a cactus that also came with the postal service one day last year. The lady has taken a shower today. She's making new branches in all directions. I'm so excited, when will she bloom? Marie will know whether she likes standing in a window that faces the east, with sun in the morning.
And look what the postman brought yesterday! Fibers from Ingrid! These will get company from something from my palette, to be started after Easter.
