Needle Crisis!

Last night when I was working on my sock, the tip of one of my double points split!! After checking to see if the needles have a quarantee (they do, thanks to the wonderful people at Brittany Needles!) I tried to glue it back together to get more mileage. I know, I wasn't going to work but I thought I would try. It actually did work for about 3 rounds this morning then it split all the way off. So now I'm not sure what I am going to do. I will probably head to my LYS to get another set just because I don't want to wait a couple weeks for the replacement needle. ( If you remember from my last post I have a goal of finishing this one sock by the end of the weekend) Did I mention patience has never been one of my virtues?
I don't know if you can see it very well but I tried to get some of the detail and texture of the stitches. It is a really pretty pattern...I just love it. But answer me this question......why do knitted socks always make your legs look big? I know the camera adds 10 lbs but come leg looks really chunky.........and it's NOT!
