Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


Outch That Was My Finger

Have you ever stuck a sharp knitting needle into your finger? Band-aids just catch onto the knitting. These clever little pads protect your finger quite nicely. The plastic is a bit textured and not as thin as you would think. I can't tell you how many times I have jabbed my right index finger with INOX or Aero 2.25mm needles while I pick up sock gussets. Before I even start I slap one of these dandy little dots on my finger. You get 64 ovals in a package. They are available in almost all craft stores and made by The Colonial Needle Co. I got mine at ACMoore, but they are available online.  Posted by Picasa

Found some today at my LYS. Thanks.

Finished my olympics thing too. How about you?

Blogger Marlene Says:

Ooooo, that is exactly what I have been needing. The side of my left pointer finger has developed a bit of a split where I guide the needle when knitting socks. It just about gets healed and I poke it again. Little bandaid dots help, but don't look as effective as those.

Blogger Suzann Says:

Hey Marlene they are much better then band aids. The material is thicker and the edges don't fray and catch at the yarn like band aids can.

Hi Brooks ;)

Absolutly Brilliant Suzanne. Thanks for the tip. I am going to call JoAnne's today and see if they carry these plastic thimbles. I live in such a small town that all we have is WalMart and JoAnne's Fabric. I may have to order some?

Thanks again
