So, why keep a journal for your
knit and crochet work?
What a good question! Shouldn't our relaxing, creative time be free of any constrictions?
One can certainly be a knitter or crocheter who doesn't write things down, but the advantages of keeping some kind of a journal are many.
1/ You will always know when you started a project and when you finished it.
2/ You will have a place to keep track of the yarn, the pattern, the needles and hooks.
3/ You will have an excuse to buy really neat colored pencils and pens, just for your journal.
4/ You will be able to keep track of the variations that you made to a design so that if and when you make the project again, you can add your personal touch.
5/ There will be a place where you can glue in photos, yarn labels, bits of the yarn, and other ephemera.
