oh, cool! I like that idea. I've always wanted to knit a gansey. I thought it would be a good "bridge" project on the way to arans. I must be knitting-ADD or something when it comes to arans. I get lost trying to keep track of so many different patterns going on at the same time. At least with gansey, you work them one at a time....I think?

Making small sweaters is a great way to learn something new. I learned how to do steeks by making some doll sweaters. They're really cute and it was quick to knit them. I haven't yet used the technique on a full-sized sweater, but I will some day.
