WIP Wednesday: August 1, 2012

It's Wednesday! You know that that's time to show off what's in progress!

This week, I'm working on a supercoil yarn, as well as a super secret test knit. Since it's secret, I can't show off a close-up of it, but it did find it's way into this picture:

Can you tell what it is? No? Good. It will be shown off at the appropriate time.

You may be asking yourself why I'm plying the supercoil yarn on a drop spindle while my spinning wheel is sitting right there, all lonely and unused. Well, the answer is simple, the orifice on my wheel is too small for the bulkier parts of this yarn, so I'm plying it up the old fashioned way (read: the way that takes way too long).

What's on the sewing table? Well, I'm working on another dress. I have no real progress pics to post, as for now I only have it cut out, but here's a sneak peak:

I picked up this fabric a while back for a different project, but because I left it for so long, I forgot what I had originally intended it to become. So now it'll be a dress (not exactly as pictured on the pattern, I'm going to make a few changes). This is what I'm working on while I figure out what to make with the possibly granny fabric.

Check out more WIPs with Tami's Amis!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
