All Pink, All the Time
Here is the Guardians of Fire Merino/Bombyx top from Blue Moon Spinnery that I'm spinning to ply with the glorious pinkiness of Monday's blog entry. I personally would have named it Guardians of Lipstick, but that wouldn't have really worked with the other colorways names, seeing as they are all Guardians of some element or another. This is wonderful to spin and since I only have two ounces, it shouldn't take too long (but I am spinning it finely so you never know).
Those of you who are alert to the goings on here at Pink Lemon Twist might be wondering, whatever happened to the Merino/Tencel top I was spinning? Well, I'll tell you. I have finished spinning the singles and decided to try something new before plying it. Since the first bobbin gets to sit a little bit while I spin the second bobbin, the twist settles down is no longer active (dormant maybe?). If I ply it with the second bobbin as soon as I finish spinning the second bobbin, I'm plying the dormant twist of the first bobbin with the active twist of the second bobbin. I'm not sure that it really matters but I thought I'd wait a little bit so they could both settle down and relax before I ply them. As soon as I finish the lipstick singles, then I'll ply the Merino/Tencel. I'll let you know how my little experiment goes, since I know you are all just holding your breath with the suspense of it all.
