This has happened to me more times than I can remember. I finally gave
up and switched over to the bent needles. Like you, nobody I knew had
ever experienced this so I didn't know what else to do. I even tried
changing the tender everyday but it didn't help. Maybe it has something
to do with body heat. I don't know. I've got a box full of tenders
that I'd like to be able to use if anybody knows the answer to this
