sharp pointed weapons

A friend once uttered about knitting that it has to be the manliest thing one can do:

"Armed with sharp pointed weapons in both hands, and usually surrounded by women"

...was his take on our favorite hobby (loosely translated from Swedish).

Now I have truly sharpened those weapons as I finally got these babies home - iron knitting needles! Made by hand by a real blacksmith. Can you imagine something cooler? I can't. Not very comfortable, heavy and loudly clanging to knit with, but hey -
Iron Needles!
I have big plans on how to display them best... But anyone who comes to visit will have the opportunity to try them out. That's a promise.
