Also, I lost ANOTHER knitting needle somewhere in the house, and I'm LIVID!!!!!!! This is the second needle I lost (the first one was a straight--the first pair of knitting needles I bought for myself--and the second is a set of circulars; both are bamboo...is there a pattern here???) Does anybody else lose needles, or is it just me? I'm so bummed--I needed that circular to finish my hat, and now I can't! I feel like I'm losing my mind! I've looked everywhere I can think of, but no luck.
i've lost needles several times, but always seem to find them. one time in particular i can remember, the needle was missing for weeks, and i discovered a hole in the couch under the cushion. reaching my hand deep into the hole, i found the needle among the springs
