Saturday while attending the Fiber Fair at Montpelier Station, we watched a gentleman shear a sheep. It was interesting. I don't remember if I have ever watched a shearing before, I don't think so. I know I have heard about it and talked with Ora about how Irv would shear. But I enjoyed watching someone actually shearing. It was a good interlude to shopping and keeping track of everyone.
I spent a bit of time spinning yesterday and continued working on socks. "A-b" and I also went to a couple of museums: the Udvar-Hazy and the National Firearms museum. "A-b" was ready to leave both museums way before I was. We started taking the free tour at the Udvar-Hazy and "A-b" only lasted about 15 minutes before he was complaining that he was hungry and he couldn't stand there any longer. I think I need to go back without children and take the tour again. Today is slated for the National Zoo, but then "A-b" and ES stayed up way too late and I don't know when we will get into the Zoo.
Happy knitting & spinning.
