Number 29, Chris, is our winner!
If you’ve ever wanted to design your own garments or just want to keep your knitting records better organized, then this giveaway is for you.
The Knitter’s Notebook is a portable journal, sketchbook and reference for knitters that includes tips on how to measure, sizing guidelines and standard sizes for men, women and children, a technique glossary and project record pages. These pages have a place for you to note the start and finish dates of a project, who you made it for, where the pattern came from, what yarn you used and how much, gauge, needles, notions, stitch patterns and notes. There are also blank charts so you can copy the charts from the pattern or even draw your own if you want to add something different to a project.
After this section there’s an inventory section where you can keep track of what needles and yarn you have (up to 42 different kind of yarn, if I counted right). There’s also a place to note sizes of family members or others you knit for often and a section for note taking, sketching and charting your designs.
This all comes in a little book-sized notebook with a strap to keep it closed.
This would be a lot of fun if you’re the sort of person who would actually use it. I’m not, so one of you gets to try it out!
If you’d like to win this one, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, July 6. Why don’t you tell me how your knitting stuff is organized now. I write patterns in notebooks or on random pieces of paper, so you know something like this would be good for me, but I just can’t get that organized.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!
