Spoiler for I think she's

Yay!!! Yes, that's it exactly!

I'm glad you got it, but I'm always scared to give guidance or steer answerers in the right direction, because once I do it once, the answer is usually VERY CLEAR. That's just the nature of my riddles, I guess. But I liked this one. : )

Good job.

An old woman sits in her chair,
While all her little grandkids sit and stare.
The blue cotton/flax, she’s made her choice,
“This is the one,” she starts with her voice.
Strong are her fingers and sharp is her mind,
While skillfully she starts to wind and wind.
She picks up speed, the children are in awe.
As grandma works her magick without a flaw.
Eventually they know there must come an end
To the beautiful, blue cotton/flax blend.
The children giggle with glee and delight,
As grandma puts the ball down and tells them goodnight.
“Please, Grandmother, do it again!”
Grandmother paused, chuckled, and then..
She picked up the mohair, fluffy and brown,
And started to wind it, round and round.

Grandmother showed them; the children aglow.
What was she really doing, though?



I think I have a masterpiece here. : ) Good luck. It shouldn't be too hard, though it was VERY fun to write.


I don't know what you mean about cycle/seasons. Can you point out where you mean?


Yes, you over thank it just a little, eviveiros. : )

Thank you. No. I am an AVID knitter/crocheter and my favorite yarns to work with are wool (too basic), cotton/flax blend, and I LOVE brown mohair. So, I had to add something in there about the type of yarn she was working with. : )

Yes, that's what the riddle says she's doing, but "what is she really doing, though?"
