English term or phrase: knuckly
her poor little body, her bare knuckly hands
aurora
Italian translation:secche e nodose
Explanation:
"Knuckly" è più forte di "knotted" (nodose), ma non trovo altra traduzione.
Abbinandolo però a "bare", si può rafforzare tutta l'espressione con "secche e nodose".

dalle nocche grosse


Explanation:
Ha ragione Paola. Sono mani dove si notano le "knuckles"o "nocche".
"nodose" sarebbe stato "knotty" per dire che le vene erano evidenti.
