Carding a Sweater's Worth (again)

Today I carded 10 1/2 batts of mixed color and 1 batt of a dark purple. This is all for a sweater that I plan to make in the fall. I want to spin this right now, but will hold off since this is suppose to be a spinning project for August.
These batts are a blend of 5 colors: dark purple, light purple, bright magenta, a dull magenta and a brownish rose color. I carded each color separately once, then carded large strips together so as not to make it too blended (muted). I think they will spin up in an interesting way.
