Just to add that Winghams were great about it. I emailed them and received a response and the freepost return address within about 2 minutes. I'll send them back tomorrow. The yarn for the skirt hasn't arrived yet, though I was
looking forward to giving them a trial run.
Bami, that's incredible! To think that needle could have been run over a dozen times before you got to it too. Fantastic!
I've broken one bamboo DPN, fresh out of the packet, by dropping it on the floor then running over it with the desk chair as I moved to pick it up
. The cats have been responsible for putting a few fang marks in others. As far as I remember, this is the first time a needle has arrived damaged though; not bad considering I buy most of my knitting stuff online.
