Attaching washers to plastic safety eyes
I was wondering if anyone had experienced that same problem as me.

Am currently knitting Sheldon the turtle (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTsheldon.html and finally got to the point where he is ready to stuff and my plastic washers are refusing to attach themselves to the eyes, it's like they are too small. I have a larger disc to push them down onto them with, but that's not working either. And I have been pushing as hard as I can, even to the point of making eye-shaped dents in my wooden shelves!

I bought them from here:

Anyone got any suggestions?
