Carding Outside

Yesterday I carded some dyed fleece out on the picnic table in the back yard. I'm planning on putting the carder away in storage--well, U-haul first and then storage in Seattle. So this is my last chance to use it for a while. This morning I got up made some coffee and starting carding again. The batts pictured below were made with just one pass through the carder. I did that because either: a) I'm lazy and it's 90 degrees out or b) the dyed fleece has an interesting color pooling going on and I want to optimize the effect or c) both a and b are correct.
