"Nobody sees a flower -- really -- it is so small it takes time -- we haven't time -- and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time." Georgia O'Keefe
When Shannon of SparkleShan sent this beautiful handspun in for a giveaway, I had this quote come to me after trying to place why this yarn seemed so familiar to me. And, to not only see a flower, but to capture its essence in art-yarn form takes a rare natural talent. See, me being not so talented, would have probably tried to spin this fiber super thin to convey the delicateness of a flower, but my yarn would probably only have become rigid and tense. Shannon saw through to the blossom's true form - soft, petal-like, organic, flowing and spun a thread plied uber-soft bulky yarn.
Who will receive this beautiful work of art? Who will then choose the perfect pattern for this yarn to "bloom" into it's intended form?
