I have decided to start a Monday running post about organization and will be telling you how I organize my crafts, blogging, work, knitting etc with my loyal Filofax :)
I know, I know, it isn't Monday yet, but I am so excited to start and the post is ready......
I have many people mention that I am very busy, and I would like to share with you the way I keep on top of things.
Today I am going to start off with my Filofax Section - Knitting.
My Knitting section has the following custom-made Printables inside of it (I will be posting a post and a free printable over the next five weeks for each page as we move through the knitting section).
1. Needles on Hand (Today)
2. Wool Stash
5. Yarn Lurv - Yarn Shopping list.
When I look at a new pattern, I used to constantly have to ask myself if I have those tips and/or DPNs on hand and then I would have to rummage through my needle drawer to re-locate all my tips and DPNs and needle gauge to find out if I actually have the necessary tools at home.
It used to be a real bother, so I decided to add a section to my Filofax that is dedicated to keeping track of all the tools I have on hand to make starting a project that much easier.
Inside my knitting section, after the divider, I have a list of all my needles that I have in stock. This is a similar chart like the one I found on Ravelry.
I wanted to personalize the chart for my usage and so I tweaked it to my liking.
To see how I use this part of my Filofax, please watch the video below.
Please bear with me through this video, I shot it in one go as I didn't want to be chopping and fixing, so this is the REAL me :D
The Free Printables I have included today are:
Click on the descriptions or the images to download the PDF files.
I generally do not use straights and do all of my knitting on either my Knit Pros or DPNs.
So I have a Needle/Hook list that includes only those. If you are like me and would prefer that model, let me know.
Next week (Monday):
Overview of my Stash - Filofax Style!
I would love to hear from you.
Do you use your Filofax or agenda to keep track of your crafts?
Will be sharing with my Link-Ups
