Purging is good, right?

My husband and I moved into a new apartment last week. We are still settling in and completing the unpacking process. Today I thought I would sit down and do a little knitting while I wait for my parents to come over for a visit. I went to get out something to knit (I'm tired of the baby blanket!!!) and realize that I have hardly any knitting needles. I think I have 2 size 7s (circular) and 2 size 9s (circular), both 16". What am I supposed to do with this??? Where did all my needles go???

It was then that I thought back to the crazy weekend before we moved that we packed and purged many of our things. Including my knitting needles and a TON of yarn. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Well, this will be less we'll have to move. I don't really need this. Of course, it was less to move. It was also less to unpack. However, now that I want to do something (knit) with some other needle sizes and circular lengths, I'm unable to since I threw them away. I can't believe I threw them away. As I look at those words I am dumbfounded at my stupidity and the reality that I'm going to have to go and buy new. The only good thing that I see with this is that I can go buy some really nice needles. I guess tomorrow I'll be making a stop at the LYS.

Threw your needles away?!?! Well, like you said, now at least you can get some good ones to replace them. :)
