she says regarding the classes:

"will be looking at the patterns used on some of the fishermen's sweaters round the UK, along with some of the the history and fables associated with ganseys. ... there will be patterns posted, and ideas for making them your own. ... the patterns will start small, and work up to a gansey itself, both in the traditional 5 ply and the aran weight often used here in Orkney."
