I satarted graphite yesterday, I’m a few inches in, I’m happy, almost to the next set of decreases at the bottom of the sweater, feeling like it’s all going smoothly. Ha!! I guess I got cocky, because this happened:
Yup, that needle just pulled right apart. These needles that are fresh out of the package, that I bought especially for this particular project just pulled apart. I’m sad and upset. I love these needles. I’ve been slowly building my collection of kollage needles. They are comfortable, they feel nice in my hands, and I swear my stitches are more even and uniform. Oh, did I mention I can’t get to my LYS until THURSDAY? and these are the only size 6 circular needles I have? *sigh*
You can tell I’m upset, I accidentally got a picture of my nasty looking smushed finger in that shot. Sorry, just avert your eyes. (At least it doesn’t hurt anymore!!)
Time to ball a skein of sock yarn.
