Inconceivable

I decided to do a knit-a-long this summer. I wanted to try spinning laceweight and the Inconceivable Wrap KAL caught my eye. The pattern was available July 1st and many knitters are posting wonderful progress so far. But I haven't even cast on yet. I wanted to blend some of my Phat Fiber Box samples with a neutral roving like to get an amazing yarn like this (be sure to click on the picture to zoom in). But wasn't happy with what I had in my stash. So I ordered some light grey Corriedale roving and am finally out of the starting blocks.

"Beach Glass" batt from Giffordables

Mohair Locks from Wonders Mohair

"Ocean" batt from Corgi Hill Farm

"Sitka Spruce" roving from Northern Lights Fiber Co.

and some of the light grey corrie blended with the samples

.

I've spun up 2 ounces so far and will ply them tomorrow. A little soaking... time to dry... and then, I'll be able to cast on. Hopefully if the humidity stays low, I'll cast on tomorrow night!

This 2oz won't be enough to do the wrap, so I'll be spinning and knitting a-long on this one!
