i got myself an early birthday present

as soon as i saw this (i googled 'handspun art yarn') i KNEW i had to have it. it was ME. not only was it my favorite color, purple, it had little dolls spun RIGHT into it! i then looked at the rest of this woman's work and was absolutely, totally blown away. it knocked my socks off. so wicked cool, i couldn't believe it. unusual and diverse. spun yarns, felting, jewelry, beading, knit and crocheted clothing items.

i'm posting pictures of the yarn i bought. i asked if i could and i can. i didn't ask about anything else. i am begging you. please check out ALL of her work. you won't be sorry.

I have no idea what I’m going to make myself. It most likely will be a hat or neckwarmer. Any suggestions?

she's in new zealand (i don't want to see many places, that is one place i DO wish to see coincidentally) but really, the shipping was minimal
