I am hoping once a good system comes along I will no long feel the need to do it so much but as it stands it's a weekly task.
Today I decided to start photographing everything so I could keep an electronic record of everything I have, like a library. I also think I might print off the pics and put them into notebooks where I can write down what I wish to make with them.
Does anyone else do this? How do you find it works? What's your system?
I think I might combine this with a weekly post so you guys can offer up suggestions of possible makes and/or other ways to store or catalogue it all.
No time like the present to start so let's have a look at my current collection of knits (I actually have more coming in the next week too so I'll update that at a later date).
Ok so first:
I have just over a metre of this black stretch lace (and 10metres of picot is in the pic too incase you're wondering) which I bought last week from a little shop I found in Forres last week called Varis Crafts. I think it was £6.99 and the picot 30p per metre. I'm thinking I could either use it in conjunction with another knit for a Closet Case Files Nettie bodysuit or go down the obvious route and make knickers. What do you think?
(Little lady hands like to stroke this one)
I think I have about a metre and a half of this plummy coloured ruffle knit left. I *think* I bought it on Etsy a while ago so I can't remember how much I paid for it. You might recognise it from when I was making the Ohhh Lulu Grace knickers?
I keep toying with the idea of maybe making a cute little vest top with what I have left but I'm not sure it won't make me look uber busty as the girls are quite big already and the ruffles might accentuate them??
I have about 5metres of both the one above and the one below.
The top one is very stretchy so maybe that could also be a Nettie? The bottom one is more a t shirt material so I reckon I'll need to take a wee daunder round all my favourite pattern sites online and see what I can find. Unless you have any ideas?
I have a metre of each of these interlocks left. I've used the pink and yellow already as you see above but the white it uncut except for a tiny sliver I used to line the gusset (I hate that word) of a pair of knickers. With only having a metre left I guess I'll either make something for one of the kids or need to combine them?
I'd love to hear what you think so drop me a comment :)
