I know I have been very harsh on my hooks and needles lately...
take a look at these sad items, some broken, some merely bent
but a couple of days ago, one of the hooks bit back...
I was working on the love heart, crocheting the two pieces together. The felt was very thick, and I had to apply quite a bit of pressure to poke my 1.25mm hook through both layers. To be honest it was quite hard work.
Then at one point, I poked straight into the index finger of my left hand.
I was in such complete shock... I didn't even say any naughty words. But let me tell you, that hook was embedded in my finger. I mean... actually stuck in PAST THE HOOK! I couldn't pull it straight out... because it was hooked on the inside. I had to maneuver the hook around and get it on just the right angle to remove it. At one point I truly thought I was going to pass out... but I was very brave!
