Ever get the feeling that maybe there's been an unexpected planetary alignment designed to cause frustration just for knitters? Who knows what movements up in the heavens have been happening this week but they seem to have caused some rather bizarre knitting needle incidents for me and a couple of friends. How often, for instance, does a bamboo dpn snap because one has bent to admire a two-year old's miniature steam train? (Leeds, last Sunday). How many puppies develop a taste for addi turbos? (Near Cambridge, mid week...happily, I hear, the pup preferred the needles to the knitting). And how often does your cat decide to vomit over the edge of the sofa, narrowly missing your knitting bag but splatting one of your favourite bambooo needles? (My house, Thursday night). Have your needles been affected?
