OR YOU MAY END UP WITH THIS:
Good thing I don't bother with manicures or sewing over my finger would have ruined it. After several attempts by first me and then the ER doc to pull the needle out with forceps and other tools, he finally yanked it out with pliers. It broke off at the top of my nail and extended through the bottom of my finger. I'm good to go now, and will be watching America's Got Talent with my knitting from now on.
