I just started on another pair of socks (I caught the bug!), and I was knitting on my couch yesterday when I set down my work to check on something. Well, my working needle was in my lap one second, then the next second it was gone, eaten by the great green monster that is my couch. So now I only have 3 size 2s, and I need 4.
When I went to the local craft store to try and pick up a new set, they didn't have any, and when I asked they said they'd never carried them in the first place. Which is silly, because I bought those DPNs there two or three weeks ago. So now I have to traipse around the town searching for a new set, which could prove rather difficult. Oy.
What do you do when you lose a needle?
