Winding the Yarn
Releasing the Body
Cut the strings that bind the skein in order to release it into its desired freestanding
shape. Find the end of the
yarn. Insert two fixed points inbetween the center of the open skein and begin to
unravel it while simuteanously forming it into a ball. While there will be no
obvious progress to your finished knitted piece by transforming the yarn from a
skein to a ball, there will be significantly more mobility and ease in your
process if you first release the yarn.
tied up in knots by its own flesh,
stiff shoulders, tight belly, jaw like a cage
yarn like a lasso… yarn like a spring of water… limp on the table with the unbound
weight of yourself
wind yourself into something new... holdable... knowable… useable...
once bound now breathe
once tied now move
extensive ….. ritual.
where did consciousness come from?
the hands that wind were waiting.
