Maddy: Hi. I’m Maddy. May I join you?
Knottia: Sure. I’m Knottia. Rhymes with Clod-ia.
Maddy: What are you doing?
Knottia: I’m drawing dogs. What are you doing?
Maddy: I’m crocheting dogs from drawings I’ve seen.
Maddy (thinking): Weirdo!
Knotting (thinking): Freak!
Maddy: Look! A see-saw! Let’s go ride it!
Aran Wool (thinking): Uh-oh
Maddy: Stop looking like that. What could possibly go wrong?
Aran Wool: You remember the swing, don’t you?
Maddy: You worry too much!
Aran Wool (screaming): Ahhhh!
Maddy: Oops. Sorry.
Aran Wool: Ugh. Maddy, you really need some humanoid friends. There’s a little doll on the bench over there. Why don’t you go introduce yourself.
Maddy: Erm, okay.

Maddy: Look, Aran! It’s a swing set! I’ll push you!
Aran: I am not sure that this is a good idea.
Maddy: Don’t be such a fingering weight yarn.
