I spent a good portion of this past winter knitting a beaded stole and using a super tiny crochet hook to put the beads on the yarn. We adopted a kitten in November and much of my winter was taking him off of places that are not his to play on, like my crafty spot (my chair and its surroundings). Well, I was watching the ice dancing in the Olympics and kitty was getting nosy so I swatted him off and wound up, somehow, with the crochet hook going through my finger, just grazing my knuckle. I freaked a bit and asked my son to call my MIL for a ride to the emergency room - the hook made it unable to pull back out. I spent a couple of hours being a freak at the hospital with a hook in my finger. Everyone came to see! I finished my stole, though (I told the nurse that I had to have the hook back), and it's lovely. My finger still hurts but is getting better.
My son said that when he saw me crying he thought it was because of the ice dancing!
