Postcard Reviews – July 13, 2020

Over 40 sweaters for boys and girls are included in this very interesting book.
Not only does this book give you several designs to knit, it also includes the history of the ‘gansey’ and the villages but also an insight of child labour, education and the life pre 1900.
The traditional gansey is knitted with no seam, so double pointed needles will be needed. The amount of yarn needed depends on the size of the garment. The sweater sizes range in age from 1 to 14 years.
The patterns are stunning, and all centered on the sea, boats and fishing. The  modern photography alongside old photographs bring to life the days of then and the children of today. They merge together beautifully.
The history of fishermen was most interesting, their way of life was hard and the small children on board the fisher boats had life even harder.
A lot of research has gone into this book and it is a brilliant and intriguing read as well as a fabulous project book for knitters.
5/5
