I’ve gone batty!

Had fun playing with the Hero again today.This time I carded up some fibre that I’d won from a group draw on Ravelry. I’m not sure what the fibre is but I want to say Como? Anyhow this tangled mess ended up turning into the fluffiest batt of super softness. Unfortunately I didn’t take a before picture, oh well.

I also finished spinning the last of my Shetland blue and white rolags. I plan on using this yarn to make a shawl. The only problem is the yarn isn’t very consistent in thickness but having said that it’s still fingering-weight thickness, just some of it is approaching lace-weight. I’m not sure what to do about this but I’ll go ask on Ravelry I’m sure somebody there will give me some advice.
