Rainy Saturday Sky and New Book

Rainy Saturday Sky on September 30, 2006Another rainy weekend, the perfect excuse to sit and knit instead of working outdoors.

I do feel sorry for all the employed people who looked forward to a beautiful fall weekend and got this instead.

Knitting Ganseys bookThis wonderful book arrived in the mailbox today.

After seeing Dorothy's CIC sweaters (here and here) knit from two of the patterns in the back of the book, I knew I had to have it.

It's even way cooler than I imagined. There is a running tutorial on all the parts of a traditional gansey where you try out the techniques on an eight inch miniature sweater. Then, there is a well written lesson on how to do the techniques "full size".

The book ends with six patterns, three child size and three adult size. Five of the six are begging to get on my needles.
