Darn It!

See this size 5 needle tip?
It snapped right in the middle of my dishcloth project and I'm not happy. I'm not blaming KnitPicks for defective workmanship. I set my knitting down for a minute and did not clean up after myself; I think one of my kids sat on it.
Why now?! I'm trying to finish this dishcloth by Wednesday to give as a gift.

Updated post - Solution: I only had about 12 rows left to complete the dishcloth so I used a size 4 on the left and a 5 on the right. At the end of each row, I unscrewed the needle tips and switched their position. Clever. huh?
