Sorry about the raggedy swatch, but I was playing. I took a class from Helen Koshak from Newton's and I had a great time. First off she a totally fun lady. Most importantly though she really knows her stuff in regards to knitting machines. She was teaching a class centered around all the things one can do with Card #3 that comes with your punch card machine. Oddly enough I had used Card #3 the night before to work on a Christmas project I'll post soon.
Starting from the bottom of my swatch is card #3 nothing fancy 2 colors. The next section is card #3 with 3 colors.
Section number 3 of the swatch... did you know you can lock your punch card reader on one line? I asked my friend Julia if she knew that and she did, but she said she didn't know why one would want to do it. So, I told her why. I'm not sure if I did it wrong or my machine doesn't like it, but the straight lines tell me I'm on the right track. Better luck next time.
The final section of the swatch I tried a window pane technique that I clearly need more practice with. I'm going to give it another try as it's one of my favorite looks of the class.
