My first knitting injury. . . .

It's my first knitting injury, and I cannot post a picture. Why? Well, let's just say it involved a Knitpicks Harmony Needle (size 2) and my ass. Amazingly, I did not bust the needle. Who knew my ass was quite the dpn pincushion? Certainly, I did not.

I was a little worried, at first, that there was a splinter of knitting needle in there, alas, there is not. I had this confirmed by a certified medical doctor -- Alex (ok, that's a joke, Alex is not a doctor, although he was a good man and checked the puncture wound for splinters. And, it should be noted that it was more on the hip and less on the ass, but an ass knitting injury sounds much better for knit-blogging).

Anyway, after sustaining said injury, I stopped knitting for the night. It's my punishment for leaving a knitting needle on the couch. :)

Ok, that's all. I had to tell this story to people who would understand.

Thanks! Hopefully knitting with pictures soon!

  1. Oh my gosh, Jen. Those needles are so sharp, especially when they lurk in the couch!

    Hope everything heals quickly.

  4. OH goodness! I'm glad there is no splinter - but must say, I laughed my ass off (pun intended) - and you should have a "windex" alert on that post....

  5. Ow! Although, you know, it wasn't entirely clear how the needle got there in the first few paragraphs. I was starting to wonder about you....
    Get better soon! I need more yarn.

  7. Ouch that could hurt. I once sat on a pair of scissors that were left laying on the couch. I won't go into detail about the scar that left, butt(he he) I know how you feel.

  8. I hope your puncture would heals quickly, they are not nice! Also, John wants to know: since your ass is okay, is the couch needing repairs? ;) Here's something hi-larious: the word verification for this comment is "yowxbl"!! Coincidence...? Perhaps!

  13. All those friends that are doctors and you had to resort to Alex. j/k If I had to pick one person to analyze my ass injury I would pick him too. :-)

    Get well soon.

  16. I sustained a similair impalement. Only Knit Picks metal so no worries of splinters. I was so glad it was ME. Man, if it would have been of the 4 "men" I live with...I would have never lived it down to say the least! Not to mention the guilt I'd have felt!
