    Well researched and interesting I don t know if I can knit a whole sweater at 9 stitches per inch, but maybe someday I ll attempt it It makes you realize how fast those women could knit They would finish one of those sweaters in a week Wow.

    A quick read Not just a knitting book but a history of knit frocks and their knitters Some gansey stitches are given as is a basic pattern for a gansey Probably not a book for beginner knitters though Fascinating book.
