Yeah. Forgive me if I am a little skeptical about their survivability.
I managed to put quite a few rows on my Gathered Pullover sleeves. [Side Note: Yes, that's a plural because I am knitting both of them at the same time! It was very exciting at first, but after some 8" the novelty has tempered. I am able to do this because of the power of superglue. Remember the bellyaching about the knitpicks needle that wouldn't screw together properly? I made it fit. In a permanent manner. So when knitpicks sent me the replacement (a harmony wood set, but I don't know why. I had the nickel plated to begin with. oh well.) I now had two sets of circs and figured, why not? Also, the harmony needle came unattached from its metal fitting, so more superglue was employed and all is well.]
Also, the house is still standing after the windstorm, and no additional plants were harmed. We didn't end up in Oz either.
