[spinning] Autumn Batt

I can never resist a pretty batt to spin. Opening up a batt is like opening up a pretty wrapped present. I picked this one up from the Fiber Stash booth at the Vermont Sheep and Wool festival this year:

I have to hurry up and prep the fiber before any of the cats (coughPENNYcoughcough) see it opened up on the table and try to rip it apart or, more likely, sit / lay / roll around on it.

Pre-drafting the thick pieces of batt into ready-to-spin balls of fiber:

The finished two-ply:

Autumn Handspun

At this point, I feel as thought I have a dozen skeins of handspun in various autumnal shades. I should figure out a way to use them all together.
