I have been an avid quilter for several years, but I needed and took a long break from it this year because of burn out. During that time I taught myself to knit and I'm now finishing my seond pair of socks.
I knit continental style. I think that is what it is called. However, I use my right pointer finger to push the needle tip back after removing my worked stitch. This is causing me to end up having worked a small split in that finger tip.
I was thinking that a flexible leather thimble or maybe those clear stick on thimbles might work well to help protect my finger tip. Do any of you use a thimble or other item to protect your finger from ingury? If you do, what method do you use?
