With empty bobbins for my wheel, I began stash diving and came up with 3 batts from Knitty and Color. These three art batts total 4oz of merino, mill ends and firestar in the color "Harlequin Girl".
To spin, I open up the batt and rip strips off it. Each strip gets rolled into a little knot and then predrafted before I spin it.

Predrafted Knot (this is the same knot from above)
One batt's worth on my bobbin.
Two more bobbins to go, and then plying!
