Giveaway: The Knitter’s Notebook

win a copy of the knitter's notebook

 

Mary Lee is our new 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!

    I spend so much time looking for just the right pattern, either on the computer or going through all my 3-ring binders. I have always wanted to try designing my own patterns and the journal sounds like it would be just the thing to keep my thoughts written down.

  2. Chantel Lee says

    You mean we have to organize craft things too?! Actually, right now, I have most of what I find online bookmarked and/or changed to pdfs and in different files (Christmas, Baby, Clothing, etc). The loose patterns I have are somewhat organized in a binder. Yeah. I could REALLY use this!!

  3. joyce says

    My patterns are somewhat organized. I have them in binders and sorted by type of garment. The patterns I want to make soon are in file folders or in a tote bag with the yarn for the project.

  4. kim says

    I have a storage box, but no organization whatsoever! Would love to be inspired.

  5. OHSue says

    Most of my patterns are on Ravelry and I have a system of zippered plastic bags to contain my needles, of course most of the time they are in cute pot beside my fav knitting spot. The yarn, well that is just out of control.

  6. Clairette Zaleski says

    I have only started knitting 2 years ago so I could sure use some organizing. I have patterns in binders, on pieces of paper, in knitting tote bag,and my yarn is in tote bags or rubbermaid tubs. I definitely need this organizer!!!

  7. Joanne Davenport says

    My knitting stuff is not at all organized, which is why I am entering your giveaway :)

  8. Theresa says

    All my printed patterns are stored in page protectors and then separated according to hats, gloves, slippers, etc. The patterns stored on my laptop are also separated by category. Much easier to find that way.

    Oooo! Organizational Knitter’s dream giveaway. At the moment I keep track of my patterns on Evernote on my iPad. I also use Penultimate to sketch out patterns and save those to Evernote as well. Photograph of patterns read really well in the app too. I also use Ravelry. You only have 42 skeins of yarn? That’s some amazing self restraint! ;)

  10. Jo Ann says

    What a great idea for all the notes that have accumulated over the years. Would love to have a copy.

  11. Judith (from Israel) says

    My knitting stuff isn’t organized. I keep all yarns and needles in one bag and all patterns and knitting books in another bag.

  12. Marilyn (Merry) Fenton says

    I keep just about everything on Ravelry but it’d be nice to have something in my purse for when I can’t get online.

    My knitting is not very organized right now, it’s kind of all over the place so I could really use something like this.

  14. Chris says

    I often write notes on a pattern I’ve printed off, or on scraps of paper I try to keep with the pattern, then I shove all of them in a big envelope (which is overflowing now…) Not so great. I could use some organization!

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I’ve just filled up my first knitting notebook with all the designs I’ve knitted plus yarn care label and strand(s)of yarn. I intend adding photos of finished items to the next one. This would be ideal!

  16. Carmen N says

    I have some online and some in notebooks, but as I’m starting to design more I really need a nice notebook that would contain the info this notebook has!

  17. asteride says

    Organized?! What a strange word. My notes are on a e-journal and even if I’m sure they are there is very difficult to find them. I love Ravelry for that, at least some things are over there.

  18. TAnk says

    This would make my (knitting) life so much better!

    Presently my knitting is entirely unorganized given that I’ve just moved across the country… Scraps of paper with notes scattered everywhere. Ugh.

    Yay knitting notebooks!
