Designed for yarn enthusiasts, this A5 wire bound notebook has loads of space for you to record knitting and crochet projects, ideas, inspiration, reminders and track progress.
Within the notebook you’ll find:
An introductory section to title your notebook and add your own indexing if you choose (each page has space at the bottom to add page numbers)
5 sections, each containing lined, squared and plain paper, and a page to attach your yarn samples plus notes
7 plastic pockets to store business cards, yarn labels, patterns, fliers – any odds and ends!
A measuring page to quickly check hook/ needle size
A colour wheel for planning and inspiration
Space for capturing your wish list of yarns, projects + accessories, to-do items, your crafting goals + reminders, things to check out (websites, books, podcasts) and your yarn inventory
Labels to cut off and attach to tension squares to keep track of what tools and materials you used
The notebook comes with an oversized binding to accommodate lots of yarn samples, and so you can fill it with lots of reference material and reminders!

Getting started - my adventures in yarn journey
Finding the joy in pen, paper and yarn
As an enthusiastic crafter, I can see first-hand the benefit of finding time for creativity and making. And as a mum to young children, with a corporate job and trying to run a small business I also feel the struggle of fitting it into my everyday routine.
Prompted by loosing track of my knitting and crochet projects too many times while I was on maternity leave, I searched for a way of keeping organised so I could focus my time on the making rather than the admin. After searching around and failing to find what I needed, and thinking that others surely face similar challenges, I decided to create my own notebook to help me keep on track.
Fast forward a few years, and I have slowly established a beautiful, inspiring and practical range of stationery for yarn lovers. Designed by a yarn lover for a yarn lover, every element has been carefully crafted and tailored for people who crochet, knit, design, dye or spin. By creating practical tools that are a pleasure to use, I hope to encourage makers to see the benefits of being better organised, as well as the simple joy of putting pen to paper.
Here’s some of what you’ll find inside the organisers:
Lots of space to record your project notes, plans of what you plan to work on next or future design ideas.
Sections to attach yarn samples and reminders, and removable labels for tension squares
Pages to record to do lists, monthly reminders and goals, wish lists of yarns, patterns or accessories, your achievements, reminders of things you want to check out, and your goals
Plenty of plastic pockets for storing useful bits and pieces, anything from yarn bands, to yarn festival acquisitions!
I’ve tried to combine useful and practical features with simple, inspiring and adaptable design.
