View Full Version : I *think* I am a tight knitter

I bent my SB 000 needles using them on a baby bib. :wall: I didn't even notice at first as they simply curved into the shape of my hand. :oops:

That's pretty funny! I was almost getting blisters on the tops of my thumbs from pushing stitches off the needles so hard. Who knew knitting could be so destructive!

You may be a tight knitter, but I don't that bending needles is all that uncommon for those tiny sizes. Were they bamboo? If so then maybe you need metal if you are going to use them that tiny.

My little US1 bamboo dpns bend all the time. Doesn't seem to affect anything, so I don't mind. :shrug:

They were Susan Bates metal.

They used to be knitting needles, now they are art.
