So I was sitting there last night watching a movie knitting away on a harbor scarf (which looks really cool by the way) and SNAP!!! my plastic needle in my right hand broke. Of course I was lucky that the store was still open rushed out and bought a new pair. This is not the first time I have broken needles. The last time was totally my fault, bamboo needles with yarn too thick but this time I was just floored it happened because I didn’t think I was knitting that hard.
Should I just stick to metal needles (and let them bend hahaha) or am I just being too hard on my needles? Is there a cure for being too rough with them because when I go it doesn’t feel like it to me. Has anyone else had this happen?
I was using the susan bates plastic needles at that time. I have a bunch of metal susan bates and they don’t even bend’ I’m just at a loss of what to do about my ‘problem’ that could become eventually expensive.
