Knitting Away

by Anne Deborah Taylor
Originally published by on 12/07/2018

Pearl one, knit two. The rhythm had a calming effect. My friends and I waited, knowing this was going to be a special day. There was a slight chill in the air but none of us noticed. There was a buzz of excitement as we waited, patiently knitting away.

Today would go down in history, would be marked by our social gathering. There were more of us than usual and the children played at our feet, unaware of what was about to take place.

The date was 16th October 1793, and Marie Antoinette was about to get her just desserts.
