I can't believe those needles are so sharp they have stabbed you. I use the addi lace and they are sharp enough...but I don't stick my self....you poor thing. I found a hank of yarn to make socks...I nearly fell on the floor ..called abstract fibers-Might sock. It is merino and tencel. Soft as buttah. But I paid 33 for the hank....Yeah, I know too much.Yeah, they have a site...www.AbstractFiber.com
and the color is Laurelhurst. I love it. Ok, chick...back to my sewing.
I push the tip of the needle to get the stitch off.. so I developed a callus.. and I hate that.. so I protect the tip of the finger so that my hands stay soft and nice... (I'm vain, what can I tell you???)
