Apple of Discord

The phrase originated from Greek mythology. The golden apple inscribed "for the fairest” tossed by Eris, goddess of discord, in the midst of the festivities at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis,  a banquet she was not invited to.  The apple was claimed by Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. Its award by Paris to Aphrodite caused events that led to the Trojan War.   

Thus, "apple of discord" is used to signify the core, kernel, or crux of an argument, or a small matter that could lead to a bigger dispute.

But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless.

Care of your hand knit garments  
Please hand wash cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. Even though this yarn does contain superwash merino, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. We use colorfast acid dyes for dying our yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. There may be a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This does sometimes happen for speckled yarn and stubborn colors that are prone to bleed. For the first couple of washes, hand wash separately to be sure that no further bleeding. 

There are no dye lots. We always try to sell from same dye lots but if not sure, we recommend blending the skeins as you work. Color saturation can differ from different dyelots.
