So I invested 6 Euros in a set of 4mm Symphony wood knitting needles a few months ago (marvelous, I love them). As I was in Berlin on a business trip this last week, and one of my friends lives in Potsdam (about a 45 minute train ride away) we decided to get together for some drinks. As he was over at my hotel room I had my colorwork, partially finished mittens on the bed with the symphony wood needles. My friend got drunk and sat down on them...and one of them broke. I was soo disappointed! However, since I still have 4 left, I switched to knitting the mitten with just 4 instead of 5...its a bit awkward but it works and itll have to do I suppose until this mitten is finished (already finished with number 1..number 2 is getting there). But note to self, never leave your expensive, wood knitting needles out when having friends over for drinks!!! Will post pictures of finished mittens soon!
