Last week this pretty arrived in the post…
(Disclaimer: This journal was sent to me for review purposes by the publisher)
It is called Knit Notes Journal and is designed for knitwear designers to keep details of their projects in. I do think it would make a great journal for any knitters also who tend to make a lot of modifications to patterns, this would be a good place to keep all those details in one place.
As a designer I often find myself sketching and calculating on any available paper. If that happens to be in the car I’ll grab envelopes and waste paper or anything I can find. That works fine until I try to find those notes when I’m writing up the pattern! I think that keeping this journal in my handbag might be a lifesaver. There are pages for swatches/notes/charts:
Extra pages at the end if you need larger graph paper
And even some standard measurement charts for designing on the go.
My only problem is that the journal is so pretty that I’m almost afraid to actually begin writing in it! Pattern writing has a tendency to be messy so it will very quickly have a ‘lived in’ look.
