Whalsay Gansey Sweater

I finally finished the sweater I am knitting for my youngest daughter; the Whalsay Gansey sweater. This sweater as really fun to knit because of the various patterns involved, switching from knitting in the round to knitting flat and, finally, a last minute panic when I thought the neck opening was going to be too tight to get over a head.(egad). My worry was for naught and I am happy with the result. Thank you, salmonmac for all your help and encouragement; I literally could not have finished this successfully without you!



Really well done,Claudia1! I love the color and stitch patterns here.

Thank you!

Very nice!

Dear BigknittedMousey,
Thank you for the kind words and welcome to this wonderful site. Please don’t wait too long to try something that is new and challenging; Courage grows every time you attempt something you’ve never done before. And remember, it’s only a sweater and the process is the important part. If you end up with something you or someone else can wear, that is gravy.



You did a great job! Such a gorgeous jumper. Your daughter will love it. (I know I would) :wink:
