Extra-Grumpy Knitter

And it's all my fault this time.

I sat down on the couch this morning and saw my knitting out of the corner of my eye. The thought "Oh, I should be care--" flashed through my mind, and then I heard it. SNAP.

I sat on my size 7 Lantern Moon needle and broke it. :( Not my cheap Clovers that I purchased with my employee discount, but my $20+ beautiful rosewood Lantern Moons.

Is there anything I can do? Wood glue? Or is it doomed?

That is really really sad. Is the break straight across or is it on more of a diagnal? I think you have a better chance of a repair with wood glue if it is diagnal. However getting the needle back to being smooth could proove to be tricky- and could muck up the existing finish on the wood. Lantern Moon doesn't happen to have a needle exchange program?

I don't know what is worse... having a dog chew a needle beyond recgonition or breaking one and wondering if it can be saved! Let us know how it turns out!
