A October 1895 issue of the Catoctin Clarion described an awful-sounding accident, making us realize that even the most mundane hobbies can have painful consequences:

“Miss Rose Coleman ran a crocheting needle into the index finger of her left hand. Dr. Kefauver was called, forced it through her finger and cut the barb off, then withdrew the shaft.”

Ouch.
