‘Those old lasses could knit anything.’









Not every Gansey knitter was born to it; knitting was a universal activity and many a new bride was already a proficient practitioner before she married into a fishing family & had to learn how to knit the Ganseys required by her new family & community. One such knitter was told she’d never knit a Gansey. ‘Right then,’ she thought, & has since knitted dozens.
