The case of the exploding knitting needle ... odd story

Check this out. I just happened to come across this online. Kinda scary althought I’m not sure if it is supposed to be a joke.

I heard about that last year, I had forgotten.

Yeah, I think of it whenever I knit with my US13 Addis. :roflhard:

I heard about this on MSNBCs ‘oddball news’ back when it first happened. Apparently it’s true.

I found the reference to the knitters review thread that was in that article you posted quite amusing though. :mrgreen:

Sure looks like an Addi Turbo…they are hollow like the one in the photo.



Makes me glad I use bamboo! :lol:

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

No chance of your knitting so fast they catch fire?

This story has not been disproven by SNOPES yet and the mythbusters don’t want to touch it. I don’t know what to think. I’m always a skeptic though.

Oh, I wish the Mythbusters would get involved!

Funny. I posted this when I first joined KH and some of you guys told me it was fake, if I remember correctly.

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

I can see it now. As my husband tries to douse the flames, I’m yelling, “don’t worry about me…save the knitting!!!”


:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

I’m surprised the Mythbusters don’t want to touch it - there’s potential 'splosions! I thought they loved anything that involved blowing stuff up! :roflhard:

I know! It’s their thing! Maybe knitting needles won’t give them the kind of explosion they crave–you know, the big boom!
