I stabbed myself in the chest with a knitting needle this morning--and I don't even knit!  It drew blood, but it wasn't a serious wound.  I was using the needle as a lever to unbend some metal, and then, when I was finished, I put it inside my jean jacket's inner breast pocket, "wisely" leaving the pointed end angled upwards, and then, when I bent forward, forgetting it was there, I done impaled myself upon it.  It smarted for a while, but I cleaned the shallow puncture out good with soap and water and then applied some hydrogen peroxide to kill any bacteria that might be present.

Ouch Sad.

I sliced my finger on the down spout today while gardening. My hands are very, very dirty. I will apply some peroxide but I need to keep working so not sure how clean it's going to stay.

Ouch to the knitting needle stab wound and the spout cut. I hope y'all are okay!

I cut the side of my finger on DOLL HAIR of all things. It's not as crazy as it sounds though because this guy had some spiky hair:


I could have probably gotten out of it without injury if I hadn't been trying to keep his hair intact. I'm thinking of using his hair "cap" on another custom.

Ouchie!  I'm surprised that you cut your finger on Holt Hyde's hair as the big toy companies like Mattel are usually super paranoid about things like that and round off any sharp edges or use softer/rubbery plastic to avoid injuries.  Monster High guys and ghouls demand blood sacrifices!  The last toy I injured myself on was a McFarlane's Dragons Series 4 Water Clan Dragon  (I impaled my knee on one of the dragon's tail fin spines, which are very pointy, just bumping my leg against her).

She looks dangerous! Shocked
Yeah, one of the edges of his hair caught me *just right* and cut me. His hair's not even sharp! I think it's just cut me because of the amount of force I had to apply to rip it off.

You guys play with dangerous toys.

My wrist has been feeling a bit painful but I chalked it up to gardening and house repair work and continued on. This morning I was ironing hems on over 40 cloth shopping bags that have been in my stash for like a dozen years just needing handles, I really want them out of the pile of UFOs. I guess I could have taken it a bit more easy, whatever I tweaked in my wrist with the repetitive ironing action now won't let me do anything at all, No gripping power and even just sitting still it hurts. I got a compression device at the drug store but all I can do is sit here lamenting. This sucks.

That's what makes it fun Wink
I hope your wrist feels better soon, CLM. If it gets worse please go to a doc to make sure you didn't do anything too bad.

I snipped one of my fingers with my micro tip scissors. They have a VERY sharp point and are meant for cutting in tight/awkward spaces. They're perfect for cutting out dolls' clothes so I use them for that and as thread snips. I thought I had my finger just out of the way and when I snipped my finger, these things are so sharp that I thought I just poked myself until I saw it bleeding Shocked

The pharmacist said if it's not better by tomorrow I should see the dr. I am not good at resting so of course the minute it felt a little better I went right back to ironing, lol. Then I remembered we were having friends over for dinner so I made a mega meal on top of it all. Thank goodness for the brace but if it doesn't feel better tomorrow it will be entirely my own darn fault.

Is it bad that your post made me look up micro tip scissors because if they are sharp enough to nip fingers I want some for crafting? I am a terrible human Tongue.

I'm not good at resting, either. I like moving and doing stuff.

Haha! Not really because I would have had the same thought.

I'm kinda mad about the whole thing with Holt's hair now. Why? Because I bought a "broken" (translation: his leg elastic was broken) Holt from a seller on Mercari for cheap and when he arrived today, his hair had fallen off in transit. What probably happened is the glue holding his hair on let go because it's hot here right now and my mailbox is black so he got heated up pretty good.
