    Talking I got a real sweet deal today...

    I scored a knitting journal [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Knit-Personal-Handbook-Nelsons/dp/1584793570"]"Knit"[/ame]... that fits in my purse, on sale for $6.60 from $22.99!

    It has:
    ~ all sorts of pockets,
    ~ zippered pouch for swatches,
    ~ knitter's graph paper for designing or writing on,
    ~ a blank page every other page (I'm thinking for photos!),
    ~ a needle inventory page,
    ~ a place to list your favorite yarn sources,
    ~ a place to list favorite patterns and their details,
    ~ a calendar of knitting events (mostly focused on the US, but also some Canadian and British events),
    ~ common knitting abbreviations,
    ~ "emergency" rolled brim hat instructions and place to put info. on them,
    ~ estimating yarn requirement chart,
    ~ standard body measurements chart,
    ~ A write up on finding yarn around the world (what's produced where),
    ~ a needle gauge and ruler

    AND...

    The best part of all? At 6.5" x 7.5" it fits in my purse! Finally, a record I can take everywhere with me...especially traveling...when I'm prone to picking up new yarn.

    Melanie Falick. Check Chapter's. I believe they are actually $5.99 there. But our Chapters were bought out by a friend who charged us $6.60 for them.
