            Unfortunately for my wife a thimble would not help prevent
her from being pricked at all. The pricking occurs through the other
side of the felting material, not the finger(s) pushing the needle
through since most felting needles have a stubby end. You are supposed
to use a foam block under the felting material you are poking through.
However, after so many stabbings even the foam becomes "deflated", so
needles sometime poke through into your other hand or lap, etc. You are
not suppose to use a hard surface underneath because the needles are
delicate and can easily break.
            I guess my wife getting pricked is a risk she is willing to
take for our relationship. :-)
            I suppose who ever called Gary's wife the "Long Suffering
Mrs. G." might have to reconsider just how appropriate that is. Does her
"Long Suffering" include being repeatedly pricked to make a little Groo
for Gary?
