Knitting the Herring: This Golden Fleece

02 December 2020 7:12 - 02 December 2020

Join Fife author Esther Rutter for a special gansey-themed reading from her critically acclaimed book on knitting history, This Golden Fleece. Patterned fisherman’s jumpers are found all over Britain, from the north of Scotland to the Channel Islands, and in this one-off event we’ll join Esther on her journey to uncover the stories and connections that make up the UK’s unique coastal knitting heritage.
