KNITTING HEADS

I remember my father knitting heads.
Broad back pressed flat
against the rails of his chair,

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

One of the audience members told me “It’s like sitting in your own kitchen.” It might be difficult to squeeze up to 40 people in your kitchen, but after visiting The Shed recently, I know exactly what she meant.
