I don't know which little face to use because.... Ingrid was right, AGAIN!!!
no, Ingrid's almost always right. maybe this one...
Either way... Ingrid was right to suggest that I take the needles back. I followed through on leaving my work on the needles and explaining and, just like I hoped, she handed me a new pair and said, "well, start knitting and just give me those others. These are on their way back."
Just a FYI here... DO NOT follow my other idea of buffing out the problem. Apparently this will cause the finish to "peel"!
Not a good thing! The company is, according to everyone at the LYS, very good about returns so the LYS was totally cool with my exchange!
Well, I'm off to work on my clog! Almost done with the top and about to change colors!
