Part Two: How to Be a Sheep
Martin, who already knows how to knit, learns that working with yarn is much more than just making things. He and Sylvia work with Miss Melinda's sheep - they shear, card, comb and then spin the wool into yarn. And in doing so learn that spinning and knitting is most enjoyable when you are peaceful and slow - like a sheep!
