Knit/Crochet Lifeline

Knitting Notebook

Pictures and drawings for inspiration

Swatches and pattern notes

Today, I'd like to share with you a very important part of my knitting adventure. It's my life line to creativity...my knitting notebooks! Although there are ways to do this online...I love Ravelry.com. I enjoy the tactile experience of thumbing through a non-cyberspace notebook. Call me old fashioned. The habit of journeling began in art school and continues today. I keep ideas, swatches, pattern notes and any pictures that inspire me. I found this very helpful when I began knitting to help me stay focused and look for new ideas and motivation. Your journal can be as simple or elaborate as you like. It's your notebook, customized just for you! It's also a nice way to document your knitting journey and growth. Give it a try if you don't have one already. Maybe, include your knitting/crochet group in the activity.

Save those swatches and be kind to yourself today.
