By the way, this book uses "Frock" as another term for sweater, not a dress as you might expect.
There are great personal stories along with history of the area, and the history of knitting in coastal England. I enojoyed the seeing the patterns in the pictures of the people wearing their "Ganseys". The patterns and instructions for creating Guernseys are well-written and clearly explained.
I devoured it in one sitting, now am going back to start the patterns!
