I’m thinking it might be time to switch to metal knitting needles. Especially seeing as this is the second pair of plastic ones I’ve managed to snap in the last six months!
I actually find metal needles nicer to knit with, but they are usually slightly more expensive – I can’t help but sort my eBay searches by price so I always opt for the cheapest pair I come to. I’ll no doubt save money in the long run if I just buy the more expensive metal pairs, especially if I keep sitting on them (on in this case drop the entire collection of Ally McBeal DVDs on them…)
Luckily I have another half finished scarf to be going on with until my new metal needles arrive!
