I'm so excited to bring you my very own yarn journal. I've spent so many years wondering where on earth I bought a yarn from, what it was called, or pulled out a scarf and wondered what on earth I made it out of.
I always thought yarn journaling was for much more sophisticated crocheters with bigger setups, however as I started to create a more formal set up for my video tutorials and custom pieces I knew it was only a matter of time before I needed to start recording things.
I realised that yarn recording wasn’t simply for crafters with too much time on their hands, it was actually a pretty cool tool, and once you get into to the habit of simply popping a swatch into your book every time you start a new ball it’s a pretty easy process.
I’m not going to pretend that I swatch every time I start a new yarn, let's be honest we grab our hooks and we’re away before we know it, however I do cut a piece off, throw the yarn band into the little pocket on the inside of my journal, and then the next time I’m sitting with a brew I take 5 to add it in.
I designed this journal to be easily printed out in A4 on your home computer and to work with a 4 hole, hole punch, one each side so you’ve 4 nice handy holes in your sheet. I find it works best if you print it out on card stock, somewhere from 160-250 gsm should work nicely.

It took me probably 3 or 4 iterations of the design to add in all the details I wanted to record and I hope you like the design as much as I do.
