Audrey is currently enrolled in swim lessons that meet on Thursday mornings at the Y. It is a lovely break for me – she swims, Elliot is in the learn and play center, and I sit on the side of the pool knitting. It’s about as close to vacation knitting as I get these days.
This morning I made good progress. I have one row to go until I start the heel flap on John’s second sock. I was knitting that last row when I felt something funny – the needle breaking.
I’m incredibly annoyed. The needles were my favorite – Lykke Driftwood. They were a Christmas gift from this year. I can’t believe they only lasted four months. I was also at the point where I was making good progress on the sock. I am afraid changing needles will stop all of my sock momentum.
I ordered a new pair of Driftwood needles (I love them enough to give them another shot) and a pair of Chiaogoo needles (I keep hearing wonderful things about them). I’m going to dig out my old Knit Picks needles to use until the new ones arrive. It is to be determined if I actually knit with them or just transfer the stitches to the new needle.
Has this ever happened to you?
