In Greek mythology, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. A phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.
Sometimes, that’s how I feel about these beautiful hand-dyed skeins. I see them, fall in love, bring them home… where they waste away waiting for a project that will work for its busy variegation. Thankfully, that hand dyed yarn will now arise from the ashes to be reborn.
Prefer to use your scraps? Yardage for each section has been included, so you can give life so some of those mini’s hanging around.
From the Ashes is worked flat, and the pattern consists of written directions. The design includes detailed instructions for the techniques used, and a handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you keep track of each row and your stitch counts.
