Handspun Friday - all about SAG fiber

I've spun this a while back, and what fun it was!

SAG fiber
I took 1. Awesome Boyfriend 2. Ode to Sunflowers and 3. Fresh Cactus.

SAG-Falkland-Ode to Sunflowers-left over-navajo plied-58yds-1.1oz

I used the rest of this fiber to make 58yds of navajo plied yarn.

SAG-Falkland-3-ply from Ode to Sunflowers and Fresh Cactus 2x-252yds-4oz-1

The main yarn is a real 3-ply yarn with one ply Ode to Sunflowers and 2 plies Fresh Cactus, and I've got 252yds.

SAG-mixed colorways-3ply-183yds-3.5oz-3

I took one ply of each colorway to make this yarn. 183yds.


SAG-3-plies-sock yarn project

Here they are altogether. I'm thinking socks. Hopefully soon.

Wishing everybody a wonderful weekend!
