Oh the Pain

Guess what I found out yesterday. 2.25mm knitting needles, when sitting on the floor at a slight angle because of a work-in-progress can go 2 inches into a human foot without hardly any pressure at all.

Yup, I managed to impale myself on a knitting needle. 2ish inches went into my foot (not out the top, in along the bottom) and I had to pull it out. It didn't really hurt when it happened, kinda felt like when you get something stuck in your sock. Only I wasn't wearing any socks.

I don't recommend it. Not so much fun.

Oh wow! That does sound horrible! At least you know they were clean going in! One time I steped on a nail in a farm barn! That is scary, and painful! Hope you are okay! Is Ben having fun taking care of you?!

That is not fun! I sat on my knitting needles once when I was working on Taylen's baby blankte (not done yet) and that was no fun but they didn't get stuck in my bum so that was good!
