The tip of my ring finger on my right hand is tingly and numb, and do you know what that means? I'm working on a twisted stitch pattern! I am a tight knitter as is, but when I am dealing with twisted stitch patterns, my death grip goes up a notch into death-by-shark grip. As a result, the right needles is pressed so hard into my ring finger that the tip starts to lose feeling, and the line embedded in my left index finger from the working yarn takes on the appearance of the Grand Canyon.
I cannot say for certain whether or not all of this should be cause for concern. What I can say for certain, is that the resultant knitted object is gorgeous!
