30 Days of Knitting Questions – Day 25

Continuing my posts from the tumblr account Crafts and Such that has a list of 30 knitting questions; one for each day.

Day 25: Do you have a knitting book or a place where you keep patterns, ideas, size measurements? Post a picture of it!

I have two knitting books I use.  The first is a binder filled with patterns or knitting techniques.  The second is my knitting journal where I keep track off all my knitting projects.

I’ve had the binder longer but I don’t use it much. It’s mostly to store old patterns I think I might go back and knit again.  Lately I’ve just been saving everything on my computer instead of in the binder.  My knitting journal is where the important stuff is.  I started it November 2010 when I decided to knit Christmas presents for the first time.  I keep track of the yarn, needles, time, pattern, etc for any project I knit in this journal.  Any notes on improvised patterns, pattern alterations, or tips if I knit the pattern again are here.

I’ll have to start a new journal soon but I will make sure I keep this journal and any other ones I make.  If my house was on fire and I could grab only one knitting item it would be this journal.
