Organization - Knitting Journal

Continuing on with my organizing, the latest craft I have organized is my knitting.  I would describe myself as a beginning knitter but I have more than a few knitters in my family.  Because of them, I have inherited quite the needle and yarn stashes.  I decided to make up a knitting journal along the lines of my embroidery and sewing journals.

This journal has pages for everything knitting related.  I included pages to record all the yarn I have with an area to attach a sample of the yarn and of course all the yarn details:

Same with needles.  I have mostly single pointed needles in my collection, but I included a page for double pointed needles and a page for circular needles.  I am really happy to have all my sizes organized and to know which sizes I still want to add to my collection.


I also added an editable feature.  I can type whatever category title I want on this page to customize the binder:

Same with these binder tabs.  It is really easy to type in whatever titles or words I want and print them.  If the categories change, I can type in new categories and print:

I am recording my various knitting projects.  So many details to remember:

I have listed this knitting journal in my Etsy shop.  I made these in pink, blue, lavender and black.
