If it hadnt happened here...
I would have never believed it. My 14 yr old sat on her size 11 needles earlier tonight, and impaled herself through the buttock into her hip. No serious damage, thank goodness. We just got home from the ER a bit ago. There was 3 1/2 inches of needle in her butt cheek. Don't sit on your needles lol. I can laugh now. I told her she was going to be the "butt" of bad jokes for years.
The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.
