Weaving Webs

The Greek "Arachne" spins forever cursed as the form of a spider.

The Japanese "Crane Wife" yanks her own feathers to spin into her creations.

The Navajo "Spider Woman" spun the world out of her sacred web.

Along with Rumpelstiltskin I am finding more and more tales that contain weaving in one form or other as a central element of the plot.

Meanwhile I have re-learned how to knit! Will this slow and steady process win the race? We shall see.
