Combing Fleece

I put on my big-girl skirt, got out my combs, and combed some Corriedale fleece from Rising Meadow

I used my Alvin Ramer super mini combs:

I wound up with about 1.6 ounces last night. It's not perfect yet, but it's pretty nice:

I also made a Koolhaas hat from this year's Interweave Knits gifts issue:

It's made from my 3-ply tweed handspun, which I spun with this hat in mind.

I've got almost enough yarn left over to make another one. I could probably shorten the ribbing a bit...
