They are plastic reference Kards that measure 3-5/16" x 5-1/4". They are extremely durable and can stand up to years of use and abuse.
What do they contain?
A wealth of knitting and fiber information.
Nancy invented them based on her need to have easy access to knitting and fiber information when performing various fiber tasks. These tasks, often times, were easy to forget and by having a reference guide easily available was key to maintaining the rhythm and momentum of the project.
Knit-Kards are sold in complete sets of 14 Kards. A 15th Kard is also available as part of the WPI Tool Kit. All Kards fit onto an included keyring. Our Needle and Hook Gauge also fits on the keyring since the gauge and the Knit-Kards are the same size!
WPI Tool Knit Kard
Over the years, Nancy wrote the contents of the Knit-Kards from both things that she had learned and things that she had developed. Once again, these were items that were typically and easily forgotten by most knitters.
The information was, in many cases, reference information but in a portable and easily understood format.
Some of the content was developed from scratch. Other data was refined from info that was already in the public domain.
But after you see and use the information you will agree that it represents a solid understanding of the subject matter.
When you carry our Knit-Kards in your knitting bag, you will have the equivalent of a large library of information that could only otherwise be accessed by toting around a large number of books.
Each set comes with a key ring so you can put all 14 Kards and ourNeedle Gaugeon the ring.
Some Kards can be written on with a pencil to record your data: Make to Fit, Needle Inventory, Crochet Hook Inventory.
You will wonder how you ever got along without them!
