Good Grief!

It's true, I am not perfect! and I will give everyone a tip. If you are knitting with Denise interchangeable needles, you may not want to knit tightly or this could happen to you! I tried to move my stitches and they would not slide. So I pulled a tad bit harder and Whamo! Thank goodness I was only 17 rows into this shawl so I wasn't that devastated!



Seriously I don't think I can fix this! My Denise needles came apart and stitches just fell off! I don't know where the YO are that were dropped! MERCY! Guess I will start over. Rip!

That hurts to look at. I just put another lifeline in my big shawl this past week. It makes me feel better.

I bought the addi clicks and the same thing happened to me. I gave them to my daughter and she loves them.

Ouch! I'll remember that when I get a set of those.

Oh no!! I have Denise interchangeables and I had a similar issue. The needles didn't come apart, but the yarn would NOT slide on the needles and cord at ALL. I was trying to do magic loop and it was just pulling way too hard on the split sections, so I had to switch to DPNs for that project, ugh. I think I need to invest in some nicer interchangeables one of these days!

On the upside, your shawl looks gorgeous in the next post!!

Wow! I had that happen with a hat that I was working on, on my Knit Picks interchangables. Well it didnt happen to me, I had two projects in my bag, and I was working on one and a friend of mine was working on the hat, she did it twice! I have no idea how. Luckally it was a really simple rib pattern so I was able to pick things up again. But I took the needles away from her after the second time.
