Ethereal Spinning

I bought this beautiful roving, colorway Ethereal, from Cantrix last month. I've been looking at it, and decided to card it into rolags.
I started spinning these Saturday morning on my 17 gram top whorl Maggie at dance practice. I think it'll make enough 2 ply fingering to make a small to medium shawl. I haven't carded a lot before this, but I really enjoyed the process, watching the colors blend a little, seeing the luster come up, the fibers getting so airy and luscious. Methinks I'll have to explore this fiber preparation thing a little more in the near future.
