They say love and obsession are spun from the same yarn.

The knitted heart

I unwind the ball of wool. Pull it tight and then loosen

My hand. It falls back.

Cast on.

The key to a straight edge is a knit purl patten.

Knit.

Purl.

Knit.

Purl.

Knit.

....

Purl.

Knit. Next row .

Knit-purl-knit-purl...faster now...

Knit-purl-knit. Click clack.

Clack click.

Next row.

Over under over under,

Over and over again.

Slow-fast I work at lightning speed,

I hope my twine does not catch fire from the

Friction.

Over under over under.

Over and over again.

I don't think it will.

Knit.

Purl.

Knit.

I crawl along the soft edges.

Purl.

Over under over under.

Over and over again.

I am making a heart.

It will be made of red yarn.

Purl-knit.

I spun it this morning. I dyed it

In my pretty love's blood.

Click clack. It is still damp.

My hands are slick and the needles are so sharp.

So hard to grip. They might just

Slip.

Purl.

Knit.

Over under over under.

Under and under again.

My pretty love said their heart was mine.

But it was not.

Click clack.

I had to take it first. To make it

Mine.

Purl knit purl.

It has to be perfect. Knit.

Purl.

I had to knit it into being,

Keep it with me and hold it tight.

Purl. Damn!

A mistake - it's ruined. Impure.

These were not the heart strings I needed.

This was not good yarn. This was not my true love's love. Ugly

Love.

Over under over under,

Never again.
