Talking Gansey

Gansey seems to be the buzz word in the knitting world at the moment.  It isn’t just our merry band of knitters talking about it either.

Sarah alerted me to this post on Fringe Association about Aran sweaters (just two days after mine) which went on a side tangent about ganseys.  Go ahead and take a read.  A couple of the books mentioned in the post just came in from my library, and I can’t wait to read them.

I think I’m finally ready to reveal the gansey pattern I’ll knit in my next post in the series.  Stay tuned!

  1. Jared Flood has done some lovely modern ganseys. I’m definitely more gansey than aran. Aran sweaters can be too busy–to wear and to knit! Can’t wait to see what you’ve picked!
