I fell in love with ganseys and gansey knitting (and gansey yarn) fifteen years ago, and in the superstitious way of the sailor I became, I feel that my love for ganseys eventually led to my career at sea. For many years now my copy of Beth Brown-Reinsel’s book Knitting Ganseys has accompanied me, often a bit optimistically, on most of my travels. My copy of this book probably has been underway at sea almost as much as I’ve been.
And it has a tattered cover to show for it.
