I started making a poncho and was not liking how it was coming out so I frogged it back to the collar. I then took the yarn I was using on the body and made the other side with a texture stitch. I really like the way it turned out. I think I will try again with other novelty yarns I have and solid yarns.
I have been adding to my Apple Numbers sheets to include a labor tracking sheet and a notes sheet.
So now I have:
1 Basic cover sheet
• This sheet has pictures from concept to completion.
• Activity section that shows,
concept date and time,
finishing project time
2 Supplies/price sheet
• This sheet shows the items used in the making of project. It is broken down of items used. Like:
non wool yarns
• It includes:
description of item,
count of items used,
then have it automatically add price and quantity.
• Including totals
3 Labor sheet
• This is a time tracker and hourly wage for the project
4 Notes sheet
• This sheet gives me the chance to see what worked and what did not work on this project, such as:
type of wool used,
crochet stitch used,
how it was felted,
use to non felted yarns and how it changed the felting process.
I think this covers all the needs to cover the beginning to completion sheets.
After using evernote for several years I found MS OneNote and much prefer it. I like the lay out better. Much better so I have migrated all my Evernote items to OneNote.
I have been using Evernote since 2012 and in the beginning I just used it as storage for things, kind of like a storage locker but recently I have started to utilize it for my felting and crocheting as well as my everyday life.
I admit I have been on Pinterest looking for any tips and tricks that will help me use it better and I have found a few. Mostly reorganizing and using the stacking process more.
One thing I would like them to add is the “web clipper” for apple devices.
Finished another necklace.
