yarn journal

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to Hannah Ackroyd, who introduced me to this.  Thanks Hannah!

The Kathryn Ivy blog/site  provides free PDF pages for your printable organization needs.  You can make a binder (with dividers, perhaps) to organize your knitting/crocheting projects, your yarn stash, your needle/hook stash, your yarn wish list, your queue, notes, sketch pages, and graph paper of different sizes!  How cool would it be to be so organized, to be able to show off your finished projects with ease, and to be able to express your own yarny creativity all in one place?  Check out this screenshot of the crochet project sheet:

It’s a little small but you can see there’s space for a photo, all your yarn specs, notes, and at the bottom you can tape/paste your yarn label and a little snippet of yarn!  I can just picture a lovely neat binder full of these completed sheets!  So are you interested in making your own project journal?  Then please go to the site with all those lovely pages:

I do apologize if this is something everybody already knows about — it was new to me and I just had to share!  Thanks again to Hannah for enlightening me.  Now I just need to go out and buy a hole puncher and a nice pretty binder and I’ll be ready to start getting organized!  I’m so excited — it’s like Ravelry in physical form!

As always, thanks for stopping by!  I’ll be on a short vacay in Charleston with my mom starting tomorrow so I might not update for a few days, but I’ve left such a condensed wad of posts that it makes me feel like it somehow all equals out. :)

    Hehe I’m glad you are excited as I was when I found them! Luckily it was after I had only completed one or two crochet projects so every projects I have ever done is stashed away in there :D I also keep a printed copy of the pattern behind each journal page, so if anything ever happens to the online copy I can still find it easily :)

      That’s a good idea to put a printed pattern page in there too. Now I just need to decide if I want to make pages for all of my previous projects, or just start now…

    I love organization and this is awesome. Thanks for sharing. I’ll have to start with my next project as I have been crocheting for 37 years and knitting for 27. Way too many projects to go back, but it will be perfect for when I start my next project.
