Gansey for My Husband
I just put the final touches on this fisherman's gansey today. It is made of Patons Capstan oiled wool that I have had for years. The labels stained the yarn blue and I had to reel that part off of each skein. It turns out some of the yarn was slightly different colors even though it was all the same dye lot. (Some had been knit and reballed and was kind of dirty. I've washed it now and it is still dirty looking.) DH likes it, he says it looks "vintage". Good thing.

This is my first full sized gansey.
