This pattern is from the fair isle gansey (jumper) that my granny hand knitted for me when she was in her 90s. I haven't used the original colours from the ganzie but I love the shades she used of blue, white, grey and yellow she wanted to use pink but I was going though a phase of not feeling very girly when she made it but now as a adult I see her choice would have been even nicer. I am the youngest grand bairn of 29 and think I was also the last to get a fair isle handmade jumper while she was still able to see to knit the fair isle patterns. She did knit right up to her passing a few weeks before her 102 birthday.
