Hello friends. How is everyone? I've been lagging on my posts to my blog. I've been doing some knitting, reading, browsing, cleaning, experimenting, unraveling, winding and much more... lol. I found my punch cards for my knitting machine but I'm not sure how to set the machine to use them in the best way for the pattern. For instance, today, I was beginning to knit SOMETHING... didn't know what yet. I just wanted to see how the pattern knit up... I tried this on 3 different cards but to no avail. I don't know if it's a tuck, slip, lace or weave stitch... lol. So, one piece came out with some type of pattern and then right in the middle it started knitting a vertical stripe and then more pattern afterwards... it looks like a form fitting knit dress, but... I made it in baby yarn and I don't think baby blue and white figure flattering dress would be too good on a baby!!! LOL At least I got a laugh out of this when I told my mom on the phone. My back is so sore from struggling with that machine...I think I will rest tonight. I found a cool site while I was trying to find some pictures of the finished fabrics knit with the set of punch cards that go with my machine. I found the punch card pattern but no pics... but the cool site is called Scribd.... it's an online library of books and documents. I placed a subscription, costs more than getting a library card but you can read the books, etc., online or on your mobile devices. No trips to the library and due date deadlines in the dead of winter... lol. I like to be warm. :) It snowed again overnight...maybe it never stopped, but the ground is white and it just warmed up enough to melt it off the streets. Tonight I think I will browse some more on the Scribd site and make up a catalog of books I want to read. I will post some pics of the things I've been knitting when I get them blocked and finished. In the meantime I will post a pic of the collected and unfinished work. lol Enjoy your evening!! Sending love and hugs...and a smile of course!
