Silence those obnoxious new parents who insist on waving out-of-focus snaps of their drooling offspring in your face—whip out a picture of you and your sheep. End of conversation. If, perhaps, you don’t already have such a keepsake, head out to the country and have your picture taken with one. That’s just one of the possibilities available at the Farm Studios Open House. Four Sugarloaf Mountain-area farms will be hosting demonstrations of dyeing, spinning, knitting, and natural-wreath-making, as well as offering various produce and crafts for sale. Today to Dec. 5 and Dec. 17-19, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Begin at Pleasant Springs Farm, 16112 Barnesville Rd., Boyd. FREE. (301) 972-3452. (Dave Nuttycombe)
