a friend to knit with journal sale

Saturday, January 05, 2019

Last year I introduced the "a friend to knit with" journal and I wanted to share with you how I use mine.  Of course, with the new year, I cracked open a new journal.
I developed a new way of organizing my projects and I really think it kept me on track with my knitting goals.  Maybe it can help with yours, too!
(That's my sketch of a knit sweater.😜  )
Okay.  So, I decide to break the year into quarters.  3 months is a very doable amount of time to accomplish a project.  Or at least 5 projects... of all different sizes.
In each quarter, I like to work on individual projects for the head (a hat or a scarf/neckwarmer) the hands (mittens, mitts) the heart (sweater, shawl/wrap) and the feet (socks/slippers).  I also like to try to come up with something I would like to knit on my own without using a pattern.
My 2018 journal went everywhere with me.  Well, at least everywhere my knitting went.  This journal is 50 pages of the most perfect grid of graph paper.  It contains a ruler inside the front cover for those time you forget your tape measure.  A pocket in the back will hold those extra yarn labels, receipts or love notes.  And, there is a calendar in the back to keep you on track with your knitting goals.
I had a page of projects that I might consider making.  And, I would list the project I actually worked on and check it off when I finished.  A total sense of accomplishment!
In the actual journal I jotted down ideas, recipes, to do lists.  But always my notes on a project.  A great way to keep track of charts and graphs.  Start and finish dates, as well.  
Of course, you can do this in any notebook but the "a friend to knit with journal" will be a constant reminder of this bond we all share.  :)  We all have a friend to knit with!

To celebrate the new year, I am going to offer 15% off journals until January 9th at midnight.  No code necessary, I dropped the price by 15%.   (It is usually $17.00)  Orders will ship on January 10th.

Happy journaling!
