There I was happily knitting away, in public, when the book I had in my lap began to slip. I caught the book so there was no loud bang to disturb the speaker, but I heard the delicate snap.
Oh No! I saved the sturdy droppable book at the cost of my beautiful size 1 harmony wood DPN. Thankfully I had that sixth needle in the set so I could maintain my dignity. (I might have cried if I only had 5) I will have to order a replacement set, and of course I lost that cable needle a few weeks ago so I should probably look into that... Hmmmm should I wait for the March catalog or just order the replacements now?
