Well....I am just about done fixing that sock. It wasn't supposed to take this long but every time I get going something seems to happen.
Here's the latest problem....my daughter, whom we call Bubble Butt...hubby is on a business trip so she was very excited when we set up a video call with him...in the bedroom where there was plenty of room for everyone to take a turn chatting.
Well I was knitting on the bed waiting for the connection when it came. My daughter was so excited that she hopped on the bed as I was moving my work out of the way and this is what happened:
At first I had to chuckle, I thought she just got poked....until she got up and I had to pull it out!
Yes she got skewered!! Luckily not deeply...but it did break the skin and it looks like she's got a cute little mole there.
Now does anyone know how to straighten this thing out without damaging the metal? I started to use my jewelry pliers but the needle is heavtier than I thought...and the pliers that will bend it are marring the metal which, as any knitter knows, is the worse thing for the yarn.
My daughter that is, not me. UGGGHHH....I swear someone has cursed these socks.
