Coffee Break

One of the cool things about working in Georgetown is that when I have space between clients, I can go get coffee and sit by the canal and knit. (Yes, that is my toe up sock. Yes, I am supposed to be working on my Ravelympics project. I don’t know what to tell you. Evidently, I lack any sense of sticktoitiveness. To further set myself back, I came home today and worked on my Popsicle socks.)

Today, I got to watch kids watch “giant catfish as big as their arm”, and then, I heard horses. I looked down over the edge of the wall I was sitting on, and I saw this:

I thought it was cool enough to see people in period dress walking with horses, and for a second, I forgot that it got even cooler. They hook the horses up to a boat, and pull the boat down the canal.

    My aunt has a real antique spinning wheel that’s almost identical to that large one!

    History rocks my socks off!
