tomofhollandMy #visiblemending challenge for today: a gansey with a great back story, which I'll talk about more once the gansey has been returned to its owner. It has aged beautifully, and it has some repairs already.

- tomofholland@ribmagazine isn't this a gorgeous gansey? 😉
- thepeppermintpostsWhat a beautiful sweater @tomofholland 😌
- gabrielpoyntonOh! Could you repair mine too?
- lyndathompson23Did you catch them taking about ganseys on Countryfile last Sunday? I only caught the end, need to Iplayer.
- sweaterspotterOoooof, now you've reminded me I have a couple of these to mend for my dad. Never ending process. He got a number of them from my opa, who got them straight from Guernsey- I have a receipt from the knitter somewhere...
- tomofholland@lyndathompson23 it's on my to-do list. There was also an interesting episode on ITV the other day about The Hebrides, I think the programme is called something like: stories from the coast? The snippet I caught was about dyeing wool with lichen.
- tomofholland@sweaterspotter wonderful! It's a really fun repair commission.
- tomofholland@gabrielpoynton if you'd like to commission me, then drop me a line at tomofhollandATgmailDOTcom.
- roberta.cummingsI look forward to hearing more about this!
- sbeslyquick@thisgoldenfleece, saw this and thought of you!
