Crochet hooks can be dangerous.

by admin on October 31, 2011

Once I tried to put a comfort cushion on one of my tiny steel hooks to make it easier to work with. While trying to insert the hook into the cushion, the hook slipped and stabbed into my palm. The bad thing was that I couldn’t simply pull it out because the hook kept grabbing the tendons in my hand. Thankfully, this did not require an emergency room visit… as my cousin helped me get it out. So… be careful !

I got the chills! Eeew! I can’t even imagine what that must have been like! This tops my sewing machine indecent…. I ALWAYS pay attention sewing on the machine…. the one time I didn’t I ended up with a needle through my finger.

Eeew! Eew! Eew!
LOL =)

I haven’t had any crochet mishaps, but I did want to comment on the cute crocheted baby hat. It is very adorable. It makes me think I should get my hooks out of hiding and get doing some projects.

Carol:
I plan on adding many more videos in the future. If there’s something that’s confusing please let me know.

Tina: I’ve paid special attention to my sewing machine since our neighbor pinned her finger to hers. She called us to help her and my sister took a pair of wire cutters to cut the needle… scared her half to death. Surprisingly, the next day she said her finger wasn’t even sore.
Just a few weeks ago I shut my fingers in the truck door… still healing from that incident.

Carol: I’m glad you haven’t suffered any mishaps… and even more happy that you are contemplating bringing your hooks back out of hiding.
