One of the saddest things a knitter will ever hear is the sound of a snapping needle.
I was diligently working on my left sock on Friday when it suddenly snapped on me. Luckily, I had finished that round, so no stitches were lost in the breaking of the wood, but it was still very sad because I wasn’t home and had nothing else to work on. The picture above was taken on Saturday morning.
Knitpicks will be replacing the needle for me (YAY!) but I really wanted to finish the sock, so I’m continuing on some metal dpns. I prefer magic loop, though. I’m not really surprised the needle snapped, it’s only 2.0 mm (size 0).
Oh, you want a progress shot?
