This "pink candy" yarn what came of plying the bright pink and the striped singles from the last post. It's a pretty intense pink--perhaps not my favorite color, but fascinating to see what happens when the solid and stripes were plied together!
Here are some deeper shades. This roving looked very fall-ish with deep oranges and reds, but the overall effect now that it's spun and plied (I wound a center-pull ball and plied it on itself) is almost "autumn at dusk" because it's so dark.
And here are the colors awaiting their turn at the wheel. The multicolored roving will definately get spun as is, but the debate is on to see if I will spin the other four solid colors or if I will use them for blending on the drum carder.
