A knitter's badge of honor?
I now have a little callus developing on the pad of my right index finger. I can't stop feeling it - I've never had a callus on my hands before! Do you all have knitter's calluses?

I do but I don't think mine are from knitting.

I don't. Now I am wondering if other people do and if that means I am not knitting enough!

Just a little bit. It developed when I first started knitting socks with size 1 (US) needles, but it seems to be getting less pronounced. Maybe I'm not helping stitches off the end of the needle with my index finger as much, or else I'm just used to it now. When I did lots of quilting, the callouses on my finger tips were kind of gross. On the plus side, my finger prints were non existent, so I guess I could have become a burglar on the side.

Snicker :rofling:

And by the way; no, I do not have a callus either. Does anyone click like they show in movies and cartoons.

with metal needles, yes I click - in fact, if it doesn't click, I know I picked up an errant strand of yarn.

No calluses, but I get dents in my right pointer finger when I've knitted all day. My skin will also sometimes break out if I'm using a yarn I'm sensitive to.

My needles click. I've got the option. I love the sound though.

No calluses, and no clicking. Well, ok, if I listen really hard, then I can hear some clicking, but it's not loud like in the movies. I took guitar lessons when I was in collage...now there were some major calluses on the tips of my fingers from that.
