Knit Notes Giveaway!


 (Side note: I've been trying to find a fun backdrop for my photos for ages, and then remembered I have these very fun blueberry and blackberry sheets that I bought in Venice, Italy a very long time ago. It's a bit dark, but I kind of like it!)

I have been loving Knit Notes, recently. The notebook is structured in such a way that it feels like a private space to flesh out some knitting ideas, or modifications. And for a knitter like me who often has a lot of different project son the go, it really helps me keep track of them.

Knit Notes isn't just for those who want to design their own knits. This is the perfect book for keeping track of your projects, such as any adjustments you might make to adjust for the right sleeve length for you, or if you added waist shaping, of it you want to make a more dramatic modification. Each project has four pages assigned for it, with sections to include as much or as little detail as you'd like- sort of like a more tactile version of Ravelry, but in a beautiful book format.


There are incredibly handy guides in the back of the notebook: an explantion of common knitting abbreviations, an overview on different types of sleeves, a guide on taking measurements, and charts for standard measurements for men's, women's, kids and babies sizes- sweaters and socks. There's even a section where you cna document the measurements of those you knit for most- friends and family (or pets!). There is even a bonus pattern for a beautiful, classic funnel neck sweater.


So would you like to win a copy of this amazing notebook? Of course you would! here's how to enter:

Leave a comment saying what you think you would find most useful about Knit Notes, AND your contact info (email or Ravelry ID, please). Comments will close on Sunday evening, and the winner will be announced on Monday.

I keep thinking of ideas for things to make, but I always end up losing the Post-Its and napkins with doodles on them. It would be great to have a nice place to keep it all straight!

As someone who always has 3 or 4 projects on the go it would totally help me keep each project's notes organized. My current notebook is a huge disaster haha. I also do a lot of mods so having a space to keep them all would be great:)

I've looked at Knit Notes a few times in bookstores and said "wow, this looks really useful!" but I've yet to actually buckle down and buy it. I love the idea of having a good place to store swatch and gauge information, and keep track of what I've done so far and what's coming up.

I wanted to try designing and actually started to make notes in the booklet but mine is not the same as this one. This one is very fancy :) and as for a beginner designer the most helpful part would be all knitting abbreviations and measurements.

I would love this! First because I would love to actually attempt designing on my own (as opposed to thinking of it).
I also love notebooks! Just like I love printed books, as convenient as ravelry and ebooks are nothing compares to the feel of s book in your hands.

ohmigoodness i love that backdrop!!! its perfect!

I love the measurements portion... i'm always having to look things up and losing my info.... and of course since i store most of my info on post-its with the project or on ravelry i never have the info i need when i need it!

Kathy said...

I would totally use this for working on sweaters. I'm always modifying the patterns but then it takes me so long to finish, I forget the mods I make to create mirror images. I spend a lot of time reading my knitting trying to remember what I did.

Thank you

Stefanie said...

What a great little book, I think I'll buy it anyway if I won't win! I am a HUGE fan of keeping track of things I accomplished, collecting data and statistics... and I am also prone to scrawl adjustments I made to patterns on some lose paper that I will never find again after I finished the project. So this would be the best thing about the book for me: just keeping track of the patterns I've tried and the adjustments I've made.
I am also super excited about getting into designing one day, and a book like this sounds like it would help a lot with the start. :)

I think Knit Notes would be most useful because I really HATE pausing my knitting to log on the computer and put my notes in Ravelry. Or trying to find the little bits of paper I jotted quick notes down on. I also want to start designing some simple knits myself and I think this would be very useful!

Oh for someplace to keep my notes as I knit socks. I'm so slow that by the time I get to the second one I've lost the scribbled notes about the first one (I've even tried using two circs to prevent this problem, but I really prefer DPN's.). Plus it just looks like a lovely book that I think I'll buy anyway if I'm not the lucky one....

I think the spiral binding is absolutely cool (geeky, probably). When I want to work on knitting stuff, I don't want to have to hold open a book and sketch or take notes on gauge or texture, I just want it all laid out in front, easy to see and use.

Anonymous said...

Uh, I have not seen this one before. It would be handy to have all notes in one place. I don't have ipad or iphone so when I'm knitting I'm not on ravelry to keep track of my notes. I usually write onto the printed pattern and then copy into ravelry when finished.

I think keeping my general measurements in one place and having a chart for sizing would be my favourite part of the book. Especially for baby knits (mainly hats) that I make more then once.

surfchick on ravelry

AgathaDarling said...

It certainly sounds like a very useful book, but I think the most useful thing about it for me would be the consolidation of notes.

I currently have a 'craft book' notebook that I use for sewing and knitting notes and it ends up a bit of a mess. I also writes notes on printed out patterns and think I'll know what it means later (I don't!). Very useful of course to have all that information but without a system for how to *find* it easily, it's just so many scribbles.

So having all that information for sizing and alterations in one spot? Brilliant.

Thanks for the giveaway :)

I've been trying to create more of my own designs, but it's hard to stay organized because I tend to just write out information and sketch things out on whatever piece of paper just happens to be laying around. This would be super useful for keeping me in check.

I always make notes about my mods on scraps of paper and most of the time I forgot to document it on ravelry, as well. Then if I need the information again, I have to look for the paper in my big pile of notes. So the organizing function would be my most favourite.

I have 3 spiral notebooks with all my knitting notes from time immemorial. I have to do a sequential search when I want to look up something. With this book, I would at least have a place for everyone's measurements. Case in point - I was visiting my daughter in London and she asked for a knitted Chanel-type jacket. Out comes the spiral notebook I took along and I jotted down her measurements and those of a jacket she says fits her well. So, the data is there, but not at all close to my sons' measurements or my other daughter's or my husband's!

Karen said...

This would be so useful for me. While I'm pretty good about work knitting, my personal knitting notes get written down in all sorts of places: various notepads, pattern print-outs, and on my computer. Often these get lost or misplaced, or the pattern gets borrowed by my kids for drawing. It's no wonder so many projects get abandoned part-way.

What a great way to "knit together" a knitter's ideas! I have trouble containing all of mine but this should do the trick. It's also great to know the author's mission is to share profits to support community development and job creation programs. I'm in!

I think having all my modifications in one place would make sense. Right now, they are all over the place, and sometimes it can get frustrating trying to remember where I wrote down the changes for a pattern. Knit Notes will definitely be very handy.

This would be a great way for me to organize all of my little notes with knitting info :). Hugs, rose

I like the idea of writing down the various measurements on a diagram of what I'm knitting. That visual aid is really useful, but unavailable in a digital notebook like Ravelry.

Having pattern and stitch ideas all in one place and even to inspire other ideas will be a great thing.

This would be great for me, cause I usually write my modification notes on paper slips or even don't write them down, for the next sock/sleeve I always have to count stitches..

I would love to have a notebook that shows how to measure my measurements and in the same book keep track of things I'm knitting. Great looking Book! Would definitely be happy if I would win one and put it to good use. Thanks for this opportunity!

Debbie said...

This book would be great for organizing all my projects. Right now I use a plain spiral notebook but this would be so much nicer. Thanks!

Ohhh! I aam starting to design and this book sounds perfect! I would love to have that to carry around and jot down ideas and keep track of them all in such a beautiful looking book.

What a lovely book. Just the thing for a budding designer or heavy modifier. This may even help me keep notes to improve my Ravelry project pages. Ravelry Id: shazzz2798

What a great place to keep ideas for future projects (not as easy to do on Ravelry). I'm always thinking of mods or furiously figuring cast-on numbers then if I do the pattern later I have to re-do them because the Post-it note is long gone.

This book sounds like a perfect reference for sizes when I'm designing sweaters for my little ones.

This looks like a great offline version of ravelry where all your notes are in one place. It's a lot more immediate too, since I only document on ravelry after I've taken physical notes. I tend to have several notebooks flying around, where I document any knitting steps. But that can get quite messy. It also takes away the chore of repeatedly drawing up a basic grid and measurement drawings and so on - you just fill in the blanks. If I don't win one I'll buy one. (hope that doesn't diminish my chances though...)

I think the most useful component would be customizing/altering patterns to fit my body specifically.

What a lovely book! I have kept random notebooks to try to keep track of my projects, but because of my ADD I lose them. This book would be so helpful to me because I wouldn't lose it!

I just signed up for the "Fit to Flatter" series on Craftsy, and this would be the perfect place to work on my new skills!

Thanks for the opportunity :)

I have been thinking I need or organize all my knitting ideas and current projects and this book would be a great place to start. Thanks for posting

Bridget said...

I would love to keep measurements for those I knit for in the same place as notes for the projects! The general sizing information sounds really useful, too.

What a great idea! I haven't seen KnitNotes before and love the idea of it! Internet access isn't always available/reliable in my part of the state, so access to Ravelry isn't always there when I need it. Knitting is very visual for me and when working on a project, the whirlwind of post-its, latte stained napkins and a frenzied sort through a growing, teetering tower of knitting magazines ending in texts/calls to the knitting sisterhood.."do you remember where we saw that cute sweater with the great stitch pattern we were talking about at KnitNite? Oh you do too! You have to because I can't find it!"
Sounds like KnitNotes will help streamline a big part of the project process and in such a beautiful format-and what a wonderful keepsake!
If I had KnitNotes, I might even get to evolve beyond my current RavID: frogginfool and develop my knitting skills instead of my ripping/frogging skills.
Thank you so much for sharing this great find! And thank you for blogging! I really enjoy your blog and frequently share your site ID and the latest entry.
Look forward to my next latte and visit with you VIA your blog. Thanks again.

I started to knit when I was about seven and now I am 24. I have just started to write schemes for things I knit. I've found it not so easy while I knitted just "from my mind"... Actually, it's very difficult!. ;} It is very difficult to track projects and to find the most convenient way to write all the signs.. And.. We don't have books like this in our country so this "Knit Notes" would be very helpful... ;)

Staying organized and keeping track of changes, issues, solutions, etc., when knitting is always a goal, yet rarely achieved. Having all this information at my fingertips and a friendly place to write all my notes might be just the trick!

Keeping track of everyone's measurements and requests! I don't seem to be able to keep them all in one place - except on the computer - which doesn't fit in my project bag ;)

Yes, yes, yes, this is a book I would love to win. I always have many projects on the go, and I always, always makes adjustments....

Thanks for a great blog!!

This must be the perfect book to complete my knitting-corner in our livingroom sofa. I desperately need its assistance in keeping track of gauge, changes I've made to patterns, measurements etc. I am sure it wouldn't have taken 4 tries to make the shrug adaptation I knitted a while back, had I only had Knit Notes handy.

I really hope I win!

It would come in most handy for me for modifications. I have two settings when it comes to knitting: turbo and snail. Basically I will blow through a sweater in a matter of days or take months (or even years) to finish it. If it is the latter I cannot recall any mods I may have made, which can make knitting that second sleeve rather difficult!

I never knit exactly like the pattern I'm knitting from, but really need to write down notes on how I'm changing the pattern. This looks like an amazing book.

I love the fact that I can practically have my Rav project notes offline :) I'm really bad at entering project notes and modification to Ravelry, but having a hard copy note like this would be really useful.

I've actually longingly picked this up in bookstores before. It looks awesome and I would use it when I travel/visit new yarn shops to make notes of projects I see and to keep track of modifications I make while knitting.

This book looks great! I think I would find the section on measurements the most helpful!

I think I would find everything helpful as I am a fairly new knitter. I perfected my crocheting techniques years ago by keeping copious notes. This looks great!

I like the idea of having a place to design new patterns or combine two. Thanks for the opportunity to win this fun book!
