Not too much to report, fiber-wise, but I have been doing a bit of spinning. This is the start of the pound of Ashland Bay "Northern Lights" colonial top.

It's spinning up much bluer than I thought it was going to, though maybe not as blue as this picture makes it seem. Based on the unspun fiber, I thought it was going to be black with colored highlights. Ashland Bay multicolored top is always fun to spin, because the colors interact in unexpected ways.

I'm spinning this quite thick, aiming for a sweater-weight 3-ply. I think the dark blue will look lovely on Emma. It's quite a switch to be spinning on my largest whorl, after all that laceweight. I have to keep telling myself, "LESS TWIST! MORE FIBER!"
