At first I thought "Ho hum, another journal."

Then I looked inside! The reference section alone is worth the price - everything you could need at your fingertips, for creating a garment. There are instructions for measuring, the amount of ease to allow, and charts for basic sizes, to help you to custom size a garment for yourself or a loved one. A glossary of common terms and abbreviations follows, for new knitters trying to learn 'knitese', or experienced knitters who need a refresher course. There's even instructions for making a gauge swatch. I especially liked the 'reminder' to launder the swatch before measuring - in case the color runs or the yarn stretches or shrinks. You will be aware of this before beginning to knit the garment, and may decide to use a different yarn.

The section on working with a 'complete schematic' isn't found in all reference books, but once you see how easy it makes working with your design elements and measurements, you won't need pages and pages of words - just a picture - I love this idea. Great if you're knitting on-the-go - no more losing your place in written instructions. Having been knitting for years, I found this section very helpful.

Following the introductory section are multiple pages for recording all information on your current project(s), in case you need a refresher (since most knitters have several projects going at once, or at least I do). The general instructions state the these pages also become a reference for future projects, and you can easily look back and see how productive you've been with your needles, or what you made for your grandchild last year, or their preference for colors in the notes section. Great for those of us who knit for many family members.

I definitely believe in keeping a craft journal (and have lots of creative ideas for crochet ones that I’ll be sharing in my own next book) and this one is a ready-to-go option for knitters. You can easily write down your start and end dates, the project’s name, who it’s for, where the pattern came from, tons of details about the yarn and pattern and needles used and measurements, etc. as well as make various notes and charts. The notebook also has a reference section of helpful on sizing, abbreviations, etc. and a section for your yarn inventory. There’s a part of me that wonders how many people would opt for this pen-and-paper option when the same stuff can be done online, through Ravelry for example, but considering that I’m someone who still uses a pen-and-paper To Do list and a print calendar for everything, I’m sure there are people who would find the notebook helpful!
