I'm always willing to throw caution (and alot of other things) to the wind; however, please be careful when throwing double pointed needles!
I'm still in the doghouse with my hubby, who almost ended up at the A&E and I'm definitely still not flavour of the month with my cat, Hat, who nearly got harpooned snoozing on the rug.
If you're going to be where there could be a few needles flying about, then be sure to wear a heavy, padded coat and a crash helmet.
All the best
I'm still not totally comfortable with dpns but I've been dragooned into the local darts team - it's amazing how those little javelins have improved my social life.
