Spinning for a Sweater

I found the next big project to spin for. I bought 2 lbs of fibre at Knit City, a lovely 90/10 alpaca merino mix.

Here's what I intend to make:

It's the Cobblestone Trenchcoat from November Knits.

The fibre content of the suggested yarn is almost the same so I'm quite excited.

I don't know when I'll start though because I'm still trying to spin for the Knitmore Girls SPAKAL 2012 which I unofficially joined. I eagerly started spinning in March and then my enthusiasm waned come June. I still have about 200 g of fibre left to do, then there's all the plying and dyeing before the actual knitting. At least with this alpaca/merino, I don't have to dye it.
