How to protect finger tips from needles
Hi,

I got a strange question. Is there something a knitter can buy to cover the right index finger & the left hand thumb. I ask because when I'm knitting with small needles (that have sharp tips) it kills my index finger especially. You know what I mean.....as your knitting you push the needle with your right index finger to transfer the new stitch to the right needle. I'm doing a cable pattern and it gets VERY tight and knitting the back of a cable row is painful.

I was thinking of a thimble but that would probably come off in a second.

Any other ideas?

Thanks so much!!
