One of the fun bits of being in the fiber business is that you get to receive very large boxes of stuff. I know my children appreciate it, as they get to make a number of box cars, space ships, etc. Well today is my birthday, and whether I subconsciously worked it out this way or not, I’ve been enjoying the arrival of several large boxes this week.

Presenting my new Big Tom drum carder from Fancy Kitty!!! It’s a cottage industry carder that makes big 36″ batts, and the licker and swift are separately controllable. Hmmmm…..big box of fiber……big drum carder. Yup, I know what I’m doing this afternoon! I’ll be reporting more on Big Tom as I use him.
