    Misadventures with glue

    hey lovey my mum, one dark damp night, was there knitting away then what should happen,, the rotten end came off her needle I know, she thought,, there is some superglue in the drawer so off she pootles to find the glue puts ,, perhaps a little too much on the nobbly end bit,, and holds it on the end of the needle well now,, she didnt notice that the glue was running down towards the gap between her index and middle finger,, that is , until she removed her hand from the needle and couldnt seperate them !!! lots of warm soapy water later, and a very sharp knife, she was in posession of 5 digits not 4 !! so you are not the only glue disaster !! xx
