I was there because I'd been given a couple of drops off another driver's run because she was busy but my run was quite quiet. So I went to Hereford and beyond on Wednesday morning. Unfortunately I neglected to get any pictures of Hereford itself which is a bit of a shame because it's quite nice and the Cathedral is very impressive. I did get a shot of the farm shop on the road to Brecon that I delivered to. It's HUGE!!! I was driving along, hoping that I wouldn't miss the turning when I came round a corner and saw it. Not much chance of missing it really?
On the fibre front I started having a proper look at the book I bought at Woolfest; Cat Bordhi's "New Pathway's for sock knitters". Here's a picture of one of the trial socks that I knitted from it last weekend. It's quite interesting constructing a sock in a completely different way from usual and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into a real pair that will actually fit me. The book itself is quite difficult to deal with though and requires a lot of flipping back and forth to get the information you require. I guess this is because it's an enabling book which explains individual stages rather than a series of set instructions which one follows strictly to the letter. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it. There's a ravelry group devoted to the book and a number of the people on that have had the book spiral bound in order to make it easier to use. Worth thinking about perhaps?
