Yes, you can jot your notes in a 59-cent spiral notebook, but hey, you deserve a little recognition! This very pretty journal, inspired by the book Greetings from Knit Cafe, is just the place for all those plans, ideas, projects, and notes. Plenty of pages, some blank, some graphed to accommodate your needs, and a few fun ideas here and there to surprise you. Paperback with clear plastic slipcover to keep it clean while being carried with you where you need it. A great way to track your knitting skill progress, notes on successes and not-so-successes, all sorts of info you will wish you had next year. Also makes a great gift!
