The only sound was Granny’s knitting needles clicking back and forth. Click, clack. Click, clack. And Granny murmuring under her breath every now and then. It sounded like: Knit one, two, three. Pearl one. Knit one, two, three, four. Pearl one. “I don’t see any pearls in your knitting,” Netanel said.
