OKnitMe is an open-source project developed by Serpica Naro collective with the help of some friends with the aim of putting to better use punch-card knitting machines, much easier to find and cheaper to buy.
The punch cards you can create with OKnitme are designed starting from a model of Knitmaster Empisal 321. It’s 24-dot wide and 48 or 60-dot high. It fits nearly all standard gauge 24 stitch punch card knitting machines including Brother, Studio, Singer, KnitKing, White, Silver Reed, Empisal and most (but not all) Toyota’s.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
