Create Your Own Hooker’s Journal

Sheri Goad

Crocheting is my addiction. I'm a mom, wife, home daycare provider, crocheter, writer, youth director, crafter and more. I like trying new things but only stick to those that I love. Life is too short to be doing things you don't love. I blog regularly at Frogging Along, and I am a Guest Blogger at Knot Just Yarn Blog for The Crochet Crowd.

    Thank you Sheri for all your hard work in putting this journal together. I so need something like this to help me get organized. I have projects all over the house and patterns everywhere. I put something down and then forget which pattern it was, which hook I was using, etc., etc., etc., so the WIP cards will also be helpful to me. I’m printing two sets of the journal and WIP cards because my sister and I trade off patterns all the time. Thank you again.

    Love this…thanks for all the hard work you put in to this! I would like to make one suggestion though. Could you leave off the year and just add a line for the year to be written in so that this could be used for ANY year? Thanks again for making this. It is VERY helpful. I keep my notes in a composition book!

    WIP cards – genius. Just recently I not only forgot the hook size I was working with – but also the pattern. Ended up confused when I had two different baby shoes in different patterns AND sizes. Obviously I need those cards.

    I’m working on a pattern binder too, so thank you all around for these printables!

    This is exactly what I was looking for to start the New Year. I searched the Internet for journal templates that I could use to keep track of my crochet activities. I could not find anything that seemed suitable so I just made up my own format. The only thing that may be missing is room for some photos that demonstrate your ideas or techniques. I have inserted several photos into my new journal that show what I am explaining in the text that I have written. I like the fact that this is something that can be taken with you when you meet with friends for a stitchery outing. The WIP cards are also a great tool. I often have projects that have not been finished but I can’t remember what size hook I am using or where I put the pattern. Thanks for all the hard work.

    This looks really very helpful. Thank you! The only thing I want to add for myself is a record of what yarn I used for what project with a picture of the finished item. That way I can remember exactly what the yarn looked like when worked up! I may need to add the picture/s to the back of the yarn sample page…

    I love this! Thanks Sheri for sharing your secrets and Mikey for making sure we know her wonderful secrets. I have been trying to figure out a way to do a portfolio of sorts for my crochet projects, as well as my crafts I do with elementary students @work, I can sooooo modify this for the latter, too. I will definitely share this with my fellow Hookers down here in the deep South of the United States.

    This will make it so much easier to go back and revisit old projects never finished, or do a project with a pattern I have forgot. ~Mikey you have made me a better hooker.~

    i love it do you have any pattern section pages to print also like for an afghan pattern section and scarf, section ,ect….? i would like to have those in my binder too!

      I don’t, but what I do is get the page dividers and then write it on the tabs. For me this works better because you can use the tabs to see the different sections.

    I like it! Except I wish I could just buy a set ready to use! I am no good at printing out stuff from a computer, especially changing what it’s to be printed on. Is there anywhere to buy the things that go in the jiurnal – like a starter set & then fillers to buy & other hings to add to the binder?

      If you go to a print shop they can print it out for you.

    Thank you Sheri for all your work and sharing. Thank you Mikey for sharing also. I already leave a copy of the pattern with my notes with my WIP, but I tend to hide them in my little house. So when I knew I had a scarf started for my Mom but where did I put it. I can leave notes in the binder where the WIP is hidden! Thanks

    Wow!! I am so impressed with this journal and have already printed it. I absolutely love the “Work in Progress” cards as I have many projects and have not been completed for one reason or another. When I get around to completing them I can’t remember which size hook I was using, etc. This was a fantastic suggestion. I love Croched Crowd even though I have been chrocheting for over 50 years. You can always learn something new.

      Glad you like it! I definitely put the WIP cards together because I was overwhelmed with all the projects without hooks! I always think I’m going to remember but then never do.

    What a lovely Idea. I must print these out. Thank you for all the hard work. I keep my patterns in a ring binder divided a-z. Your post reminds me that I should put the patterns I recently printed out into their plastic sleeves and properly file them. I see so many beautiful projects the crochet crowd people have made and want to emulate them. On the other hand I think I will crochet and put off the filing until later.

    This is a great idea. My daughter and I have made 2 of 3 ring binder ones from when we print out patterns from the internet, but the extra you put in yours is great. Wish we had thought of that. Great idea.

    Uuh-ooh. I’m in trouble, I never thought to keep a diary of my projects, I just think or find a pattern a do it sometimes it just takes hours or days or………years. I just recently started using my phone to photograph my creations and then share them on this page and revelry. I can see that it would be good to store patterns from magazines so that I wouldn’t have so may issues stacking up…… thanks for the idea

    Bang on. I wanted a way to organise my wips etc. I can be pretty organised, but because I am a perfectionist, nothing I tried worked. Then? I read about this custom journal. Thankyou . 😀
