The O'Brien 2019 publication of this book by author Vawn Corrigan helped fill the written story gap on Aran knitting or fishing sweater knitting in Ireland.

Usually a subject investigated more by writers of other Nationalities with a knitting emphasis, Vawn Corrigan approaches the subject as a writer passionate about textile heritage. She is also an enthusiastic maker.

Edel met with Vawn and had numerous telephone interviews on the subject of Aran. Reading the early drafts part of Edel's contribution came in the form of noting some important knitters that she felt have not been recognised "enough" in recent decades for their unique contributions. The wonderful early work and later Aran inspired porcelain of Cyril Cullen, the skilled hand loomed Aran of Rossan knitwear for example. The book is full of interesting facts not recorded before about out Aran journey.

Does Not contain Aran patterns, does contain Edel's Blackberry stitch instruction at the back
