Having bought new needles, I later discovered some heavier duty needles already residing in the sewing box (see below) which I thought would be ideal for sewing the remaining cushions. It would appear that I was very wrong (see below). Not only have I managed to snap all three needles, but I broke them spectacularly - they pinged over my shoulder mid-stitch.
"Rasputin! I am very cross".
In other yarn and needle related matters, Bandit decided to help me sort out some DK acrylic.
And the Odd-Ball Orphan Box overflow has been delayed. Janet is making a gorgeous domino-knit bedspread from sock yarn, so I am donating this lot.
I was never going to get around to knitting it up. This lot will soon be joined by whatever's left of this ball of "Rico" from the BF's new socks.
