Tip / Technique Tuesday

If you’re like me and you appreciate the need to swatch certain projects, the following tip might work for you.

Want to keep track of your swatch dimensions without pesky post-it notes that don’t always stay “posted” and in place?  Use marking tags instead.  I got these ones from Amazon but I’m sure you can find them at any office supply store.  This size is just the right size to record all the details I need to record.

    What a fantastic tip! I never thought about doing that. Anything to avoid re-swatching again because I can’t find where I wrote down my numbers from last time, lol!!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      LOLOL! We think alike! 😀 I thought about it when I started to forget what the pre-blocking measurement was and had to do it again.

    Great idea, and looks like you’ll have plenty of swatches to keep track of! I have so many things I need to catalog, write down, etc…

      I’m trying to up my productivity this year so finding this solution was a godsend.

      It’s because my notebook was bursting why I decided to look for another way to catalog these swatches. I think I was high off the “I got all my stash in Ravelry” fumes. LOLOL!

    Excellent tip! Can’t tell you how many little “mysteries” I have laying around! 😀

      LOLOL! I can imagine since you knit more than I do and you teach! I’m trying to tame mine before they get out of control. 😀
