Yarn Journal

Since knitting around here has been almost non-existent, I thought I'd share my method for keeping track of my projects as a way to keep you interested. Wait a second, I finally did finish the 3rd bootie. Anyway, last year probably around this time I was in a LYS and came across this yarn girls' knitting journal. Later on I picked one up for a friend to give as a Christmas gift. I just couldn't stand being without out one so I added it to an Amazon order (probably so I could get the free shipping=sucker) in the later part of December. I've been keeping track of all my projects since December 31st, 2004.

It has all the right spaces for all the right information that I want to remember. Usually the gauge swatch spaces are left blank since I don't normally knit swatches for several reasons. #1 I knit a lot of felted objects such as bags which aren't affected much by gauge being off. #2 I'm lazy. I always print a photo from my ink jet and add a swatch of yarn. This is the page I journaled for the converse socks.

And for the yet to be completed circus socks.

And the Knit for the Cure tote bag.

Any other pages you would like to see?

Cute book! I like that that labels and orignal yarn are there too. I used to keep a project log, but stopped once I started my blog. Now labels are everywhere, swatches are mixed in with patterns...your way is much more organized!
