fiber weekend

This past weekend I was very busy with fiber. I flicked fiber, spun fiber and knit fiber.

Here are 3 locks of Lightning's fiber:

This is what it looks like after I flicked one of the locks:

Flicking opens up the locks so when I go to spin it into yarn, it can adhere to the other locks.

I often will sit and watch TV while flicking fiber (or keep on eye on Zack while he's in the pool). I hold a bin under where I'm flicking to catch as much of the dirt/debris that I can:

Here is the flicked fiber in a cloud, ready to spin:
