I have to admit, I don’t use punchcards much … OK – that’s my excuse for today’s boo-boo.

Can you see how the punchcard jammed as I was knitting? Not only did I put it in upside down (notice the numbers on the left), but I didn’t pay attention to how the card join was lapped.  Arghhh!!!!!

Pay attention! Jammed punchcard

 

 

Lesson learned:  After inserting your punchcard, be sure to overlap it so it will cleanly rotate through the punchcard drum.
