    Very cool knitters journal!! I love it. Sure would help not having lots of post-it-notes everywhere LOL

  2. Maureen

    Oh I love to read about knitting and patterns and the process of how a project ends up.

  3. Karel

    I am SUCH a knitting book junkie: One 7′ bookcase dominated by crafty delights! Still plenty of room for this edition: thank you for the offer.

  4. Amanda Heyen

    This seems like exactly the kind of knitting book I need. I do so many alterations to all my garments to get them to fit properly, I’d love a place I can keep that math so I’m not always re-inventing the wheel.

  5. DebbyS

    Sounds perfect! With multiple wips and a stash that’s out of control, let’s just say that I need all the help I can get!

  6. Gwen Gotsch

    Definitely could use a knitting journal. Because the random collection of post-it notes in various knitting bags is unmanageable.

  7. Bekky V

    I’m a librarian and am incredibly excited about this book! What a way to get organized!

  8. Mary Kay Smith

    As I just recently started working on the Masters Knitter program, this would be very useful! Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Kate

    What a great tool! Am thinking about taking the plunge to dabbling in creating my own designs, and it looks like this would be a real help in that.

  10. Tara P

    Oh yes please. I am terrible at keeping project notes (I have them scattered in roughly 6 different notebooks). Clearly, I need help!

  11. Christy

    What a great way to keep track of your projects! I love Ravelry, but having a paper book on hand is much easier to update than loading up Ravelry on my phone.

  12. Tara Deluca

    I’ve been trying to get a handle on all that information for a long time. Very cool!

  13. Sherry Walls

    this is one book I would love to own. i just designed my first garment and would love to have a proper journal to write my notes in.

  14. Maxi

    Wow, that is such an amazing give-away! I always folgt, which needles I used, and which alterations I made, so this would be incredibly helpful to me!

  15. Ramona

    What a great concept! And I love the paper journal rather than computer. It’s why I love my bullet journal so much.

  16. Paula F

    I sort of keep a journal of finished projects and a sloppy notebook of notes from classes. A journal with guidance might be very helpful and fun. I’d love to try.

  17. Lisa

    I would love to have more organization in my life, but may have to give up some knitting time to get it.

  18. Martha Donley

    Wow, that sounds like a really useful book for someone like me. I try to organize but I always seem to lose things.

  19. Deb Kegelmeyer

    A wonderful giveaway and something truly needed by anyone trying to organize all their knitterly thoughts.

  20. Lynn

    What a fabulous tool! I’ve tried to organize my knitting in this manner but somehow get sidetracked. This would be perfect!

  21. Erin

    Ooh! This is DEFINITELY going in the Amazon cart (aka All the Things I Want But Would Probably Otherwise Forget)!

  22. Tasha C

    Having a wee look through, it seems like the kind of book every knitter needs. Just hope they have lots of the stash pages. I know a few knitters with a SABLE – not me though I am getting there

  24. Eva

    I love the book!
    I think I’m a very organized knitter. I keep a sort of journal of every project, and when I finish something, I evaluate the process. But I’d like to learn more about this matter.

  25. Jessica

    I’m just getting back into knitting and think that this would be a great resource!

  26. Loretta

    I’m fairly new to the knitting world, so I would love any tips to help me better my tension skills for a more uniform fabric. Thank you fo the opportunity!

  27. Nancy Gossett

    I love this! I try to keep track of things in my project notes on ravelry, but I have always been a hand-writer, a lover of pencil and ink — note-taking on the Internet is just not my thing.

  28. Liljpnimpt

    Don’t know if it’ll keep me organized (lost cause…) but the resources in it sound really useful!

  29. Gina in the SF Bay Area

    If this is what it takes to get my knitting life in order, bring it on!

  30. Shelley Nordin

    This book looks like it’s just what every knitter needs! As a newbie knitter I think it helps to have vital resources to guide you to making your best knits! Would love to win!

  31. Debra

    Wow this journal looks fabulous. Hope I am the lucky winner. Being more organized was/ is my goal for 2016. Thank you for the chance to own this great resource.

  32. Sharon Bailey

    I’ve been looking for something exactly like this. In fact I tried to come up with my own at one time.

  33. shelley krueger

    Something like this is desperately needed. The yarn and projects are taking over.

  34. Lynn

    Would enjoy this journal. I am always trying to remember things that I did for past projects. This would be great!

  35. Chris Ignasiak

    Does owning a knitting journal make one a more organized knitter? Please tell me it’s true………..

  36. Fara

    I know I could certainly use more organization in my knitting life! Thanks for the opportunity!

  37. Beverley

    This is an invaluable book which I would love to own. It would solve all my notebook problems by keeping everything neatly organised. I have started to swatch and keep notes as I have to adjust patterns to my size. I saw how useful it would before I looked at the sample pages, then I knew how invaluable it would be

  38. Lucy Harrington

    Oh. My. Goodness. Something to help keep it ‘all together’. Please, for the love of organization, pick me.

  39. Lori B

    I am just about to finish filling in my current knitting journal! I was going to order the same one again, but I like the layout of this one much more!

  40. Alex

    I usually hope I remember enough to put it on a ravelry page once I’m finished. This would help 🙂

  41. Katharine

    What a lovely book! I have continued to enjoy the Knitty Blog. Thanks so much for continuing to post interesting knitterly news!

  42. Sue Plantinga

    I SO need this! I always have a half-dozen things on the go and need to write stuff down – like “what yarn/needle/hook is that again?” 🙂

  43. Catherine Conrad

    I’m so glad to hear that you are healing well and feeling better. Hopefully your neck pain will heal too.

  44. Pamela Morgan

    I need something for my notes. I get asked questions I can’t answer because I forgot what I did !

  45. Stacey H

    This looks like it’d be an amazing help for getting an ever-growing stash of yarn and needles under control! What a lovely giveaway!

  46. Lesley Barnewall

    As a knitter with many projects on the go at once and a suitably fluffy brain this book sounds like it could keep me on track. Thanks for this opportunity.

  47. Christine

    ” Need a little more organization in your knitting life?”

    I get that this is a rhetorical question, but even for that the answer seems excessively constrained.

  48. Kim Dailey

    Love this idea! As a relatively new knitter, I’ve been struggling with tracking my knitd and stash. And this looks like a great way to do it!

  49. Doris

    I need organization help in almost every aspect of my life… knitting is perhaps the most obvious! I would love to win this.
