love knot n : a stylized knot used as an emblem of love
When I taught a class about dragon stories last year, we delved into the cultures that had these stories in their literary traditions, eating a traditional snack and doing a craft each week. One of these was the Welsh; we looked at and created our own Welsh love spoons.
The Welsh love knot has multiple variations each with their own meaning. I like the simple meaning of the knot: as a married couple you are tied to each other in love. In this one-of-a-kind piece for M, I opted to use three love knots - one of their past, one for their future, and one for the present.
Hope she likes it!
