Has any one knitted a Gansey sweater. I was wanting to try one. I attended a Beth Brown-Reinsel workshop for mittens. Now I want to try a Gansey Sweater. Trying to get up the nerve to start after the holidays.
Great news for Fair Isle enthusiasts! I just discovered that the old Starmore book has been reprinted and is now available. I'm happy about this but there is a certain sting remembering how much I paid for my then out-of-print copy!
I think this is the very best book on stranded colour work technique ever.
You can find it on amazon.com for only US$19.77!
This week I finally received the newly released book "200 Fair Isle Motifs - A Knitter's Directory" by Mary Jane Mucklestone, a well-known knitter and designer. The book, published by Interweave Press, has 208 pages and is printed on glossy paper with page after page of colour photographs.

This was in my local Sunday comics today.
Two of my main Christmas presents are done. An Afghan for my mother in law and an Irish hooded scarf for my wife. Both very fun to do.
Hi. I'm new to the site, thought I'd introduce myself. It seems like everyone just uses the blogs, it wouldn't let me post in the forum.
OK, so like I told Quinton in another post, I'm working on a theoretical way to make a sweater with no seams. I think I have the idea in my head, except for one place, which I'll mention in a moment.
