Lots of people do it and lots of people complain about developing a sore finger. And you're right, the Options are sharp.

We all push the needle, but what I do is either use the other needle or if I use my finger I push along the side of the point instead of the end. Takes a bit of practice but after a while it feels perfectly natural and avoids poking holes in the finger.

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
