Ouch! Is it okay now. Trouble is the roof of the mouth bleeds a lot. How many times as a child were you told not to put sharp pointy things in your mouth!!!!

I shouldn't think there is a knitter who hasn't done this at some time. Best thing to do is have a stiff drink and lots of chocolate!!!

Oooo ouch. I do hope you are ok and on the mend.
... ive done that nasty before, so i stopped holding needle in mouth and have now resorted to holding needle in my hair/hair bun (like Chinese style hair sticks.) so this way, my needles wont hurt my mouth ever again or so they dont get lost down the side of my lounge... lol just remember needle is in hair, to avoid another booboo.

Same thing happened to me some time ago. I was busy knitting socks on four needles. One was in my mouth :-bumped it into my soft palate. It is because we didn't listen to our mothers telling us not to put the needles in our mouthes!

Owie. I have never done that. I don't think I ever put my needles in my mouth. It's a good reason not to start.
I agree about rinsing the wound. The alcoholic beverage isn't a bad idea. For a change you can swish and swallow your "mouthwash."
