Ben W. Brumfield

What could that last sentence mean?

Linda Tucker

Yarn can be wound in a heart shape. Since she often wound string and fabric scraps for the children to play with, I assumed that she had done something similar with knitting yarn.

Ben W. Brumfield

So is she noting it because she's disappointed that her heart came out tangled-up, or that she's proud that she wound a Tangled Heart?

Neil Brumfield

"Wound a tangled hank." A hank of yarn or thread used for crocheting or knitting.

Linda Tucker

I think Neil's eyes were sharper than mine on this one! Good for you for solving the mystery.
