Getting Organized: Creating A Sweater Planning Notebook

I am one of those people who loves to be super organized so this week I decided to create a new Sweater Planning Notebook to put all of the information that it takes to plan each sweater. I had a composition notebook that I was just pinning, stapling and taping everything into but that started to look a little bit messy.
During the hangout last night I told some of you about the idea and was asked to share some of the printables that I came up with. Well here they are, print them out and enjoy the world of organization!

Here is what I have on my notebook cover:

This is what I use to keep my final swatch, a yarn sample, ball band, needle size, gauge, etc. all together on one page. I just print one per project, attach everything then slip it into a page projector and put it in my binder.

Sweater Details Sheet

I also keep some extra measurement worksheets on hand for the different people that I knit for. I printed the first page once and the second page about 10 times. I keep these in the back of my binder just in case.

If you are using the 30 Day Sweater Workbook or Course it would also be a great place to keep your printed out downloadable worksheets! Let me know in the comments if there are any other printable pages you’d like to see and maybe I’ll make some. I always love to have more great ways to keep things organized!

How do you like to keep your projects in order?

You guys requested a binder edge label to go with the cover so here it is!

    I downloaded the book and punched it and put it in a notebook along with all the other downloaded stuff I have collected. I have other informational e-books I have printed out. Also will put in my swatch, etc. I had to wait until my yarn was delivered and now am just starting the raglan increases. Maybe I can get caught up.

    These are awesome… thank you for the great print-outs. I too keep a knitting journal in a “Composition” notebook but for large projects such as a sweater I make them their own folder/binder. Love the Note Page. Looking forward to adding this to my Knitting experience. Today is my Day 1 so far.
