|Happy little sheep|
The Gansey pullover is at a point where I need to make a decision about what texture stitch/es to put on the top section and then the sleeves to the elbows. This project is inspired by the Gansey sweater in Knitting in the Old Way (1985 edition) by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts. It is fun to knit with a general plan (sketches, stitch dictionaries, travel photos, measurements, etc). The split hem is in garter stitch and the "seams" on either side are two purl stitches, which split apart as the underarm gusset is knitted.
