What’s better than making a New Years’ goals or intention list? Writing it down and sharing it with friends. The team at Ravelry understands the power of accountability and encourages users to set up their own 2019 Ravelry Project Challenge, a tool to help you document your goal. Just log in to your Ravelry account and go to My Notebook> Projects > Challenge (tab in the top right-hand corner) to set up your personal goal.
We have yet to see Marie Kondo tidy up a yarn stash, but we have a feeling she would encourage us to become a more organized, efficient, and goal-oriented knitter. Perhaps she would suggest these organizational journal pages from Sew DIY. Not just for sewing, these printable pages allow for notes of all sorts, including goals, measurements, notes, and more for each of your projects. Tidy yarn stash or not, we have a feeling we’ll get a lot of use out of these.
