For noget tid siden strikkede jeg Gefion sokkerne som en del af en byttehandel med Molly. Jeg har nu modtaget min del af byttet fra hende, et sæt utrolig smukke, håndlavede strømpepinde.

Some time ago, I knit the Gefion socks as a part of a trade with Molly. I have now received my half of the spoils from her, a set of incredibly beautiful, hand made double pointed needles.

 

Pindene er af metal og er derfor “tunge”, eller i hvert fald tungere end tilsvarende af træ. Men tyngden er faktisk behagelig at have i hånden og de smukke snirklinger i pindene gør at pindene griber garnet godt, dog uden at det er svært at få maskerne til at glide. Det er en nydelse at strikke med dem og en fornøjelse både at se på dem og at have dem i hånden. Jeg er meget glad for at have været med i byttehandelen og siger mange tak!

The needles are made of metal and are thus “heavy”, or at least heavier than similar needles of tree. But the weight is actually quite comfortable in the hands and the beautiful ornamental work in the needles make them grip the yarn well without making the stitches difficult to move. They are a pleasure to knit with and a delight to look at and to feel in my hands. I am very happy to have been a part of this trade and says, thank you very much!
