Crafts are really not my thing and other than basic needlepoint and embroidery I never learned and can't do anything creative with my hands. It's a shame and I regret it even more when I see stuff like hand-painted and hand-spun yarn (seriously, hand-spun by the artist using a spinning wheel!). The force behind Fabulosity Yarn is Joy from Montana who does things like pick sunflower heads, turn them into dye and use it to color wool (the yellow one below).
Of course, I'm all about colors and looking at some of the skeins is making me think of makeup palettes- real and imaginary. I can't knit and have no idea what I'd even do with yarn, but the idea of something that looks like Blush Horizon de Chanel, any of the Guerlain palettes or NARS Hanamichi is captivating.
