On Taking Notes

I'm not so good at taking notes for my knitting projects. But I think I have some motivation to take better notes now.

top row, l - r: cascade 220 the heathers for a veste everest, cascade 220 for an ariann, rowan felted tweed for a tangled yoke cardigan.
bottom row, l - r: rowan 4-ply soft for an apres surf hoodie, rowanspun dk for a cabled spiral pullover and reynolds soft linen for a $1.50 cardigan

These are swatches for five sweaters and a vest that I knitted about 4 or 5 weeks ago. I though for sure I would remember if I had to go up or down needle sizes for the swatches, but I forgot what I had done for a couple of them. Thankfully, I did remember what sizes I had used and I won't have to knit the swatches again, but from now on I hope to take better notes!

On another note, fall is here to stay (I think!) and I've finished the Equinox Yoke Pullover. I hope to have the photo shoot this week.

And, I've started the Veste Everest. It's quite a bit further along than in this photo, and I hope to finish it this weekend.

Hope you're all enjoying the fall weather!

thanks for the reminder about keeping track of progress...I'm always switching from project to project and forgetting exactly how I swatched or what needle I was using.

Can't wait to see how the Estes vest comes along and that Pullover looks gorgeous from the preview photo!

Oh my, you made the sweater? I am in awe of people with such a talent as yours. Do you sell your work?

Your swatches are very nice, and would start the makings of a fantastic lapghan.
I love the Fair Isle sweater the colours work beautifully together.
Kathryn Ivy has a lovely blog and a very nice free Knitting Journal to download.(
Could be somewhere nice to keep your knitting notes.
Your blog is beautiful Lisa, I will be back again for more.

Beautiful Equinox. I am very tempted to try the tangled yoke after seeing your swatch!
