They keep disappearing and it's so very sad. Its usually not for lack of customers, IMHO, but rent, overhead, utilities, licencing, taxes, fees, etc., etc....

Still zipping along with my KnitPicks ball winder. Over 3 dozen balls done and nary a problem. Did several balls of some 800 and 1195 YPP chenille. The cones were so big that they wouldn't fit well on the bulky's table nor feed well from the floor where the machine's situated.

I've done it many times. I use a spreadsheet (Open Office) and resize the cells. This, of course , is just the basic shape, without any fancy stuff like k2 tog and such. Then I adjust.

I feel I have more control over my Knit Picks hand winder than I would over an electric winder. I like to be able to stop my winder easily and quickly when I come to a "yarn barf", etc. in the skein I am winding from.

I know what you mean! Yarn barf ... Thats a good one!! LOL.

Haven't had a bond in years, but remember rolling up the hem. Especially for afghan panels.

I have The kindle fire HD 8 and love it! Can print out on my son's wireless printer just fine. Its new to me, so am still exploring.

I have had a Knit Picks Ball Winder for several years and have found it to work well and am very pleased with mine! i would definitely purchase another one if it became necessary.

Totally agree. It's very sturdy and well made. Took me a couple of minutes to get that little plastic head screw to go on LOL. But even with that, it was up and ready in just a few minutes.

Woo Hoo!! I bought the Knit Picks one on Amazon. And I'm thrilled with it. Got to use some of my credits I've been piling up. My Silver Reed one started giving me problems. The blue & white/cream one. Wade (my fabulously handy son), had fixed it once before about 7-8 years ago. And my other one, the red & white Wool Winder has a couple of new issues, so I had to get another one and get busy de-stashing by knitting for charities. Skeins are a pain with the knitting machines so I need centre pull balls.
I'm so happy.

All of these suggestions are super!! Thanks folks. So many possible solutions to my mess. Greatly appreciated. Will take pics and let you all know. Some are Toyota, some Brother and I think a couple may be Studio/Singer.

I have never done this but I would try a warm iron over a cotton cloth. Try a low setting to start with and gradually work up to a higher setting. Too hot and the cards will buckle. If you have a scrap of waste card, it might be an idea to put a crease in it and see if this works before trying out on a punched card.

Hi Susan,
Thanks for that suggestion. I'll give that a try and report back. I've got an old VERY worn out card I can crunch / crease up and run it over it with my marble rolling pin for a couple of days.

I'd picked up a box with punch cards at an estate sale recently and several (12 or so) have severe creases / folds and I don't know how to get them flat again. Some have punch design from a mfg, some are hand punched. A couple are blank. The other 14 are just fine.

I didn't spot any tears or broken holes, but didn't want to try straightening out by just with my hands in case damage happened.

What's the best way to try to flatten them? Do they need to be soaked or something? Steamed between a couple pieces of thick cloths?
