I'm one of those weirdies who jam the right knitting needle under their arm and knit away happily for hours ... well, until we got record temperatures for July yesterday that caused a problem.
For once, it was hot enough for me to venture out in a sleeveless blouse (there's no end to my fast livin') - normally, I wear a duffle coat, covered by a cape and just to be on the safe side, carry a blanket at all times.
If I want to go for a walk, I put my outdoor clothes on as well ...
Anyway, the knitting needle started digging big time into the underside of my right arm because it was directly on my skin; it wasn't just that it was a bit painful, I was worried about instant cumbustion, you know with the heat and everything.
Found a solution - I excavated an old sponge-type hair roller (curler?) took it off its plastic frame and plonked it on the end of the knitting needle. Bliss!
Can't let 90 deg. temps and hot sharp metal spoil the fun!
Happy Knittin' and Knatterin'
