[Introduction] The white needle glinted hypnotically in the firelight. Up. Down. Up. Down. Her stitches were even, as they always were, and she looked down at the bodice with detached satisfaction. Across the room, the old woman sat at her rocking chair by the fire, long knitting needles furiously flashing, dripping with jet black wool. The sound of the sewing machine’s constant whirring and the chair’s steady rocking filled the room like a heartbeat.
