The fact that her children are in bed has set her free from 'all the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal,' and a number of the words describing her state convey the removal of things and reduction of her life: 'evaporated', 'shrunk', 'shed', 'sank down', 'pushing aside' and 'losing'. There is also another repetitive action, her knitting, which allows her mind to 'be silent; to be alone'. Notice that the knitting continues without interfering with her thoughts ('Although she continued to knit, and sat upright, it was thus that she felt herself').

In this case, the use of 'netted' and 'net' repays attention. It occurs three times: first as 'fruit was netted and covered over', then as a hostile image, 'hateful, like a net folding one's limbs in its meshes', and finally as Bernard's control over the formlessness of life when he 'netted them under with a sudden phrase'.
