Uh Oh!

Do you see anything wrong with this picture?

Here, let's get closer!

Drats!  My knitting needle broke.  I was working on the second sock of my third pair of socks when things came to a screeching halt.  Now I'm sitting around waiting for a replacement.


  1. So you are a violent knitter?

  2. This is very distressing. I have not ever heard of a knitting needle breaking in the midst of knitting. My grandma only used metal needles so they wouldn't break. Hope you are enjoying your weekend...

  3. Lovely, lovely socks! You might want to try the "Magic Loop" method using a Addi Turbo Lace 47" circular needle and you would never have this problem again! Plus, it's way easier and a lot more fun!

  4. Did you try putting the broken piece into a pencil sharpener made for make-up pencils? After the broken edge has become somewhat pointed, sand it with very fine sandpaper, and it should be usable until you receive your replacement. After all, the stitch size is determined by the circumference of the needle, not the size of the tip, so the shape and size of the tip don't matter -- just the body of the needle.

    Just a thought so you can continue -- it's frustrating to have to wait in the middle of a great project.


  5. BUMMER! What pretty socks!
