    no, that's not so close. More than one year late

    I am just going to list some things we know based on the hints. Maybe it will help someone solve this.

    This is referring to a twinge of pain.
    It may or may not be a twinge felt by Frodo.
    It was felt more than one year before Frodo was stabbed by the Witch King at Weathertop with the Morgul Blade.
    It was the 'first" twinge. That implies that it is repeated.

    I think that is all we can say for sure.

    Afraid I've gotta disagree with your detective work there boraxxe. We know only that it happened before Frodo's stabbing by the Witch King. In order for us to know for certain that it happened more than a year before the "Knife in the Dark" we would need Eddie' to have said it was more that two years late. Ya see what I'm sayin'?
    I'm not sayin' nothin'. I'm just sayin'.

    May be going too far off the mark and I can't recall the exact details, but here's my guess...

    When Gandalf first begins to suspect Bilbo's ring is the One Ring?

    You are right. I misstated that.
    We only know it happened before the stabbing.
    Thanks.

    Hmmm,
    Bilbo sticking a spider with Sting in Mirkwood.

    Spot on. May I specify that it was that occasion when he named the blade Sting

    Thanks for the welcome back Boraxxe !

    I'll take a wild stab and say the encircling mountains of Gondolin?

    Denethor being the 'King' of Gondor? To be perfectly honest I had to Google who was ruling Gondor before Aragorn.

    Both of the last two answers have been reasonable guesses, but both are on the wrong track.

    Could it be as simple as the Dark Throne of Morgoth then? Or Sauron?

    Yes.
    But why? Just being dark does not render it concealing.

    The riddle stick is yours bambu3, but I am hoping you can provide a reason for why your answer is correct.

    Even though I have read the story, I have to admit I did not recall this on my own and found it with some help. The fact that Morgoth's throne was large enough for Beren to hide underneath is what you are looking for yes?

    New one coming soon...

    Ents

    The only reference to being hasty in the Lord of the Rings that I can think of is with the Ents.
    They are allies to the Free Peoples (sort of ) and Treebeard declares that they may have been too hasty with there decision to attack Isengard.
    So, is it Ents?

    nope not Ents

    Try not to get caught up in the word itself as much as the meaning

    I'll take a punt on Gimli and Legolas, IIRC they were said to be "becoming fast friends".

    I'm thinking Huorns, being far more hasty and abrupt than Ents. I can't really call the Ents hasty, so I don't think they count. Unless you mean by hasty allies something like allies to the hasty, in which case Ents work.

    I reckon I made a mistake in choosing words especially with 'hasty'. Maybe this will help...

    Change it to hurried alliance

    So many potential answers still. I'll guess the Fellowship (the nine walkers). Time was running short. Not only was summer waning and winter drawing on apace, a most inauspicious season for a cross country trek, especially a trans-mountain journey. Also, the Dark Lord was in a rush to recover what he lost and he had intelligence that it was in the possession of a hobbit, and he was prepared to move heaven and earth to find it. Time was of the essence, indeed.
