I know this is a hijack, but I just wanted to congratulate you lotus on your riddles - they are brilliant and I thought that you deserved an acknowledgement of that :D

Spoiler for I hope I'm close

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.

yes, that's what the riddle says she's doing, but metaphorically, what is she "REALLY" doing?
