Un-Knitting

Un-Knitting

I looked down at my jumper
And found a strand of wool.
My brain told me to leave it.
My fingers told me, Pull!

I tugged and pulled and rolled it.
The strand grew to a ball.
I’m wearing just two sleeves now
And Gran’s not pleased at all.

I love this poem Sherryl. I want to read it later to my kids. My head is awash with visual imagery of unravelling a jumper now.
