Fiber Friday

Thanks for all the comments on knitting notebooks. Many said they use Ravelry and I do too. But my notebook is a place to hold the my knitting stories. Like the one about my orange sweater. I started that sweater in September 2015. I swatched but quickly realized that I needed to be knitting a different size so I unknit and started again. Then I set the sweater aside and could not remember where I was in the pattern so, yup, unknit and started again. There was more unknitting and restarting on the sleeves but finally, two years and two weeks later I was finished. I learned so much during that time (and had many more knitting projects on and off the needles). When I wore that sweater for the first time, I carried all those stories with me.

I think my knitting notebook has been influenced by Ann Hood and Clara Parkes. I don’t want to lose touch with the reason my hands keep reaching for needles and yarn.

I do have a few pages with lists of podcasts, knitting related books, a fiber events for my someday travel list. I have a tally sheet for donation hats and places that take hat donations. I am including pictures and want to start adding knitting wisdom and quotes.

So, here we are, another Friday and an evening ahead that will include a good glass of wine, some lovely cheese, and time for knitting. Enjoy!

  1. I have a journal that is a catch all for everything – meal planning, record keeping, lists and thoughts and sketches and more. You’ve inspired me to start adding knitting notes as well.

  2. I LOVE your knitting notebook … all the ideas and the very cool design you added to the cover! It’s going to be full of stories AND inspiration. (and I think I’m going to copy it! I need more knitting lists in my life 🙂 perfect for a grid notebook, yes?)
