I'd rather die terrified than live forever.

i'm personally pretty imune to the pricks, but it hurts like hack when they go under your nail.  Angry

but even though it just hurt at all, i must have thin blood or something because they bleed like mad!  everyone says wierd thinga about putting a bandaid over a tiny pin pricks, but if i dont blood goes everywhere!

I once stepped on one of those push pin tacks and didnt feel a thing... Not until I noticed my steps sounded like plastic hitting wood that I realized something was wrong... hehe

my friends and i have gone past the bleeding stage...
we poke ourselves with a pin or a needle and we marvel at the fact that there's a hole... pain... and no blood...

I stabbed my finger really badly last night (that's what I get for sewing at 1:00am without my glasses) and barely even felt it...
You know you've been pin-pricked too many times when...

While opening a bottle of fabric paint a three weeks ago, at 1:30 AM... (this sounds corny, doesn't it) I stabbed myself with my fabric scissors, creating a rather deep wound. Of course, me being so flipping cool "I don't need a band-aid. I will just compress my wound with a tissue." after a while, I thought the bleeding had stopped. I take off the tissue, and it has started to bubble and run down my hands. I than rush to my bathroom, and rinse it off. Of course, at this point, the blood is coming out so hard it's running down my hand/arm and the water mixes. I take a moment to observe the color.... hmmm... looks like the yarn I'm using to knit my hat. So... I get it all toweled off and reasonably under control, put on a superman band-aid... and I'm good.

I got the bottle of paint open without any further incidents, and finished my t-shirt. before going to bed.

The reason I do knitting more than sewing is right in this thread!  I bought myself some plastic yarn needles the other day.. I hopefully won't need to go near any metal pins and needles for a while!  Smiley

Amazingly- I've put a sewing machine needle through my finger and not have it break.

Ohk, this has probably nothing to do with craft/sewing etc.... But i was at work, tidying up (recovering) the lingere section at my work (i worked in a department store) and i was kneeling along and kinda, walking on my knees to do the bottom row... and you know those security tags with the (thick) pins that are about... an inch or so long..?? Yup.... you guessed... I kneeled right ontop of it and it went all the way in... i didnt realise till i stood up and it scraped the bone...  Lips sealed
