>I don’t know what to make of these punchcards.
I punched another one out using a template from one of the Knitmaster packs. I then tested it out. It dropped stitches on the same row every time – it was either row one or row two, I’m not sure which. Why would it do that?
I thought yesterday that it might be because my blank punchcards are thinner than the pre-punched cards which work perfectly. So I came up with a plan. I bought some sticky back plastic and covered the front and back of a blank punchcard with it. It made it thicker so I thought it might make it work better. I punched out the same design that I’d been trying to do then tested it.
Can you believe it dropped stitches on the exact same row as before? What’s going on?
It only goes wrong on that one row and I can’t understand why. Obviously my idea of making the punchcard thicker with the sticky back plastic didn’t work.
After my latest attempt with that punchcard went wrong I tried one of the pre-punched cards to see what happened and it didn’t drop a single stitch. So I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m only going to be able to use pre-punched cards and not be able to punch my own. This means I have wasted my money on the four pattern books and the pattern packs.
Can anyone think of a reason why I’m having this problem? It’s driving me mad.
Talk to you later,
