From Handknit Holidays:



The stitch patterns in these ganseys--a Tree of Life motif and a basketweave stitch--echo JoLene Treace’s childhood memories of her grandparents’ log cabin, where her family would gather on New Year’s Day for sledding, skating, and exploring the nearby woods.  Her recollections of tromping though the woods, gathering treasures in baskets, and playing hard in the snow with her cousins are knitted into this warm, wooly sweater, sized so both you and a little one can create your own adventure filled memories.
