Item Description...
A beautiful handbook of more than 100 blank pages waiting to be filled with notes, sketches, photos, yarn snips, fabric swatches-maybe even the occasional poem-Knit is the perfect companion for anyone committed to exploring their creativity or simply consolidating the myriad scraps of paper that currently make up their organizational system.

Casual knitters can treat Knit as a general diary of everyday notes, while more prolific knitters and designers can use it as a place to sketch patterns and track progress on complex projects. For all levels of proficiency, the built-in needle gauge/ ruler, zip-shut pouch, pocketed dividers, and comprehensive reference sections are indispensable.

Among the special reference materials are a needle inventory chart; a calendar of holidays and knitting events; fill-in directories for favorite yarn sources and patterns; yardage requirement charts; and a basic hat pattern sized from baby to adult. Knitters can even learn how to say "yarn shop" in more than twenty languages.

This concealed wire-o journal is a companion piece to Weekend Knitting by the best-selling author Melanie Falick, and includes five full-color photographs from that book.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Stylish, but...  Feb 8, 2008
This is a very attractive journal. If you want something ready to fill in, then I highly recommend it. But I found that it had some things I wouldn't use...and other things missing that I needed. So, I decided on a custom-made journal for recording all my knitting notes, projects and patterns. What I came up with was purchasing a mini-binder (5-1/2 x 8 size) and then ordering binder accessories from Day-Planner. (Or you can choose Day Timer, if you prefer.) I purchased clear top-loading page protectors, business card holders, and graph paper. When I have a project/pattern to preserve, I type it up nice & neat and stick it (folded down to size) in the page protector. Can also add a photo on the backside. I put yarn shop business cards in their designated holders. And the graph paper is for both handwritten notes and doodling designs. There are lots of other binder accessories to choose from: address book, calendar, etc. I also decorate the outside of my binder with knitting stickers...especially love the one called "Knitting is Knotty"!!! :-)
The Best Knitting Journal I've Found!  Jul 31, 2005
I was a little hesitant about buying this journal because of a user review that said that it did not have any space for notes about finished projects. The publisher's summary said that it did, but the user said that it didn't. I went ahead and ordered it to figure out this little enigma. As it turns out, the user was commenting on the fact that there are no standard ruled pages to write on. The publisher expects users to write on the graph paper. That is why the graph paper section is so large -- basically everything about your finished projects goes in that section, not just graphs. Really, I think that's ideal. I didn't design my own graphs for all of my projects, but for one project in particular I made several graphs. It's ideal to be able to take several pages to put the graphs in right next to the photos and notes. That is the main reason that I prefer this book over most knitting journals that don't have any graph pages. Finally I can store away those charts that have been lying around on loose leaf paper for the past year!

I also love the knitting needle inventory. I have accumulated many needles at this point and everytime I start a new project I can't remember what I already have and what I don't. The inventory page even lets me keep an organized record of what lengths I have in each size. It records straight, double pointed, and circular needles. The favorite yarn sources is also very helpful, I'm always forgetting which websites have the best deals on which yarns. The knitting holidays section turned out to be exciting because I found out that there's actually a big knitting event in my sister's town. It also includes note lines for each month that I can use to pencil in relatives birthdays, etc. There are also four folder pouches and a zippered plastic pouch to store miscellaneous items.

The graph section already mentioned has a line up the outside for a title, then a small line for a date and another for a number. Other than that, there is just the graph design. I think I'll stop in at a craft store to get some corner braces to neatly place photos on some of the pages. That section is the majority of the book.

Then there's some basic knitting info: abbreviations, pattern for an all-sizes rolled brim hat, estimated yarn requirements chart for various standard projects (hats, throws, sweaters, etc), standards for body measurements & gauges, a knitting needle gauge and ruler. I also love the elastic band that keeps the book neat and together after you've stuffed it.

Incidently, this is sort of a companion to the Weekend Knitting book, which I also highly recommend. The journal has some photos from that book.
The Perfect Little Knitting Journal and More!  Jul 12, 2005
I picked this up as an impulse purchase and am really pleased!

First of all, it's just lovely. The cover design is very attractive. The binding is "o rings" and they are concealed by the hard cover- important, because you don't want them caught in your precious yarn! There is a wee plastic zip bag inside which I've found to be perfect for stitch markers and finishing needles, both of which I'm always misplacing.

The knitting needle inventory is amazing. I've never seen one so complete and that is what drew me to this book. It covers every size I've ever seen- from 6-0 (.75 mm!) all the way up to size 50! It also allows you to track the length of those needles, as well as dpn's and circ's.

There are sections to keep note of your favorite yarn sources, favorite patterns, and a small calendar with space to note dates for yourself (perfect to keep you on track with that blanket you're knitting for your grandma's birthday) as well as major yarn events.

All the sections are divided by pocketed dividers with space to write. Perfect for that napkin that you brainstormed that pattern on- at least until you put it in the next section!

The next section is all graph paper- perfect for designing your own pattern or merely keeping your thoughts in line. For some reason, doing gauge conversions on graph paper really helps me keep my math in order.

The last section is extremely useful for everyone- new and experienced knitters alike. A pattern for an "Emergency Rolled-Brim Hat" that was clearly written by someone who really understands the knitting mind. The introduction says, "...when you need a last-minute gift; when you're faced with a long car ride; when you're itching to knit but dont have time to focus on starting a complicated project." There's also space for you to write down what yarn you used and who you gave a hat to... so you don't accidently give the same gift twice.

Following that is a section on Estimating Yarn Requirements and it covers all projects- socks, hats, sweaters, what-have-you. Followed by standard body measurements, standard yarn weights, and a very cool page on finding yarn if you're travelling overseas.

Finally, there's a knitting needle gauge & ruler in both US & Metric sizes. One less thing to get tangled in my yarn!

I recommend this journal highly. Give it to your favorite knitter and it will be a favorite gift, or give it to yourself!
just the ticket!  Jul 3, 2005
I was looking for a place to journal my completed projects, and this little book proved to be just the ticket. The trouble with using an ordinary journal for knitting is that it quickly 'outgrows' it's cover when you add yarn labels at yarn samples to it. I found that this journal has extra space around it's spiral type binding, and has a built in elastic to hold it shut. The needle inventory, quick patterns, tips, etc. are just an added bonus for me. My only wish is that it was a little bigger, to accomodate more projects.
Caught up by the Knitting Bug!  Apr 12, 2005
I bought this book because it was getting such rave reviews.
The book is portable and has a nice cover picture, the cover is hard with an elastic strap to hold it closed so it won't get bent up when thrown into your bag.
I was disappointed that it didn't have pages to keep track of completed knitting projects. There is a calendar and graph paper and a page to keep track of needle inventory.
I already own the Knitters Companion that contains everything in this book and more so The Knit; Personal Handbook is just excess baggage.
