Done! Met my goal of four ganseys in January for the current CIC challenge.
At 3 stitches/inch the knitting was quick. I used the schematic measurements from Jerod's Gansey pattern and calculated the stitch counts as I knit using the concepts from Beth Brown-Reinsel's Knitting Ganseys book.
Pattern: A piece here and a piece there from Knitting Ganseys by Beth Brown-Reinsel
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky, 85% wool, 15% mohair
Color: Brite Blue (their spelling)
Needles: Addi Turbo 10.5
Gauge: 3 stitches/inch, 4.5 rows/inch in stockinette
Now would be a great time for my Cascade 220 to arrive at the yarn store in Kalamazoo. The roads are not slippery and I'm ready to start a new project.
It was 40 degrees F when I went to the grocery store late this morning. Michiganders were walking around enjoying the balmy weather with their coats hanging open. Me included.
