"Yes, instead of in regular knitting"
Yes, instead of in regular knitting, obviously you have your two metal needles and when you make the ganseys you have to make them on circular needles, so you’ve just got two small, they’re about four inches long where you have your metal part, and the other part is just like a very fine, it’s nylon, like nylon plastic so it can take the weight of the wool when you’re making it. You know, but, with the wool being very fine and the needles being fine as well, you have to watch because it tends to cut the creases of your fingers when you make them.
