Late last year I started up a little notebook for my knitting – socks. This year I realized that I should use it for all my projects because why not?
I am a big fan of taking a copy of my purchased pattern or magazine. I mark up the copy with my changes, or make sure that I can figure out where I am if I need to put the project aside. Because I had transitioned from doing other’s patterns for socks to basically doing my own (or redoing ones that I have done before ) marking up a copy didn’t work anymore. Hence the little book.
It is a nice small size; something that fits easily into my knitting bag, or in my small purse. It has a built-in elastic band that keeps the book from flopping open in my bag or purse. I can also use it to mark the page when I am knitting so I don’t have to search around when I need to refer back to my notes.
Here it is, open to my page of notes for this one red sock:
On the cover of this little book is a pretty green background with purple flowers and a quote from Buddha, "We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world."
I guess I am making the world into one big sock! *grin*
