Another Broken DPN!

grrrr.
While knitting on my Evil Sock Genius Socks, one of my size 2.25 mm Rosewood Colonial Needles broke! Snapped right in two. I wasn't happy.



Oh, you get to see Maddy & Hugo in this video. They were a bit rowdy and playing.

Is it just me snapping needles in half?
Has this happened to you?

the knitpicks harmony needles are pretty tough, and pointier, too. might be a thought.

You're right Dragon Knitter. I have one set of the 6" harmony dpns and 2 sets of the 4" harmony. The 4 inch are just too small for me.

I ordered two sets of the nickel-plated 6" dpn's last night. I wanted to avoid ordering them but my LYS didn't have the size I wanted (2.25 mm) in stock.

I am like you, I prefer double pointed needles. I recently tried circulars for socks and I just didn't like it as much.
