New Spinning

I've started spinning the Ice Blue Merino (this is a commercial Merino Top - nothing fancy or handdyed) portion of my three ply/three fiber yarn. I decided to do it as the second batch of fiber because it doesn't change colors or do anything interesting and we all know that at the end of a spinning project, I tend to get a little bored. I have finished all three bobbins of the Mojito Love batts (the third one looks surprisingly like the first two so I'm not going to do show and tell with it), just in case you're wondering. This particular fiber, while it will be rather boring to spin (the Mojito Love had silk and Angelina in it, the last fiber - Delia's BFL - changes tones and shifts colors), this plain Jane Merino top will be a very important part of the finished yarn. Because it is a solid color, it will anchor the whole yarn and make it look cohesive, even though the other two plies sparkle and change colors. This one is going to be the glue that holds the whole thing together and will make the combination work.

As of tomorrow, things should have settled down as much as they ever do around here so I'm hoping to get back to regular blogging!
