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.
