(Taps playing in the background) You served me well for two pairs of socks and numerous sock starts. Little did we know that there was a weak spot in your middle that would snap at the most inopportune time. Thank you for holding yourself together just long enough for me to knit the stitches, the ones that clung perilously close to death, off and onto another needle. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. You will be remember each time the Razor Shell Socks are worn. Farewell, my friend, my US2 Bryspun DPNs.
Edited to add that I might have raided the stash that I was planning on sending off to a friend and…well…took a set of bamboo US2 DPNs. It was a for a good cause though, I mean, come on! It’s the Razor Shell Socks. That’s quite a lovely reason to become a needle thief. Yeah, knitting has really increased my rationalization skills.
