Sad Day in Knitting

The other day I broke my very first knitting needle. I’m happy to say I’ve been knitting for a couple years now and up until this point I’ve successfully kept my needles in tact. Until Wednesday 😦

It’s a size 1.5 dpn that just snapped in my hands. This is what happens when I try to quickly squeeze in a few heel rows while playing fetch with the dogs and making sure I’m not late to the gym. Luckily I was able to pick up all the stitches that I dropped, but after that all I could do for a few minutes was look at the broken toothpick-like stick on my lap. And now I’m scared to pick up the sock again in case another one of the needles snaps. I never knew knitting would come with so much drama.
