30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 25

Do you have a knitting book or a place where you keep patterns, ideas, size measurements? Post a picture of it!

Like most internet savvy knitters these days, I keep my notes / patterns, etc. on Ravelry. It’s the easiest way to go back and look over the details of a project, especially when knitting a pattern for the second time.

For my downloaded patterns, or those not on Ravelry, I have folders set up in my Google drive. I have one set up for Crochet and one for Knitting. They are further broken down by categories, such as blankets, sweaters, scarves, cowls, baby, etc. I really like this set up because when I switch from my desktop to my laptop or any other device where I can sign into Chrome, I have access to the same photos and patterns.

I do still have books and they are mostly located in my home office / craft room on bookshelves. They are also cataloged into my Ravelry library, which means when I knit from one of the books, I also have the pattern online. Here are a few pics…then I have a few scattered throughout my living room. I also have a folder where I keep completed printed patterns from years gone by…and those that are really, really old and precious to me that I’ve kept from my Grandma and other relatives.

 

The 30 Day Knitting Challenge is the creation of Meggiewes who blogs at Knitting in Wonderland.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!

    I use Ravelry too. I know the rage right now is knitting notebooks but I’m too lazy to write everything out and own. I’d rather type it all in.

    1. Same here! I can’t imagine keeping that many notebooks around.

  2. I really like your bookshelf. The books seem very precious. It’s also interesting to hear that your home office is also your craft room. I’m trying to get together a work space like that and I’m glad to get any inspiration.
