I know it's not a knitted object, but it IS knitting related.

It's a beautiful journal that I made up this week. I printed the pages, follow this kinda tutorial (http://inaminuteago.com/blog/index.php/archives/2006/12/10/adding-pages-to-a-wire-bound-journal/) to make the cover out of hardboard (masonite), and bought the ring binding at my local scrapbook store.
I made DH help me in the garage today. He's the best!!!!! :happydance:

I :heart: :heart: :heart: it!

Perfect solution!!!

You could make some and sell them to other knitters too (hint hint!)

Your journal idea look fantastic. I've been wanting to make something like this for a while. :yay:

I also live in the Detroit area. Where do you shop for your yarn? I love the yarn shop in the Fisher Building (City Knits).

I live in the detroit area too! :happydance: My favorite LYS's are Indigo Rose in Sterling Heights, Sweet Celeste in Mt Clemens, and the Knitting Room in Birmingham. I hear Have You Any Wool in Berkley is really nice too, but I haven't been there. I refuse to shop at City Knits now because of how the owner treated/laid off the manager there, who is a member of my SnB.

This is SO cool. I'm going to create one for myself. Unfortunately, I've already knit quite a few things and not taken pictures, but will start now. Thanks for the great idea!

Thanks for all of the compliments!

If you are all interested, I can post the file that I used to print out the pages...
I'll do that when I get home. I used some random downloaded font so I'll have to find a link to that too.

OH. FYI. When i went to buy the metal ring binding, I bought a small one. 5/8". It's WAY WAY WAY too small to fit around all of the pages I had printed out. I wanted to keep track of about 100 projects and only about 1/3 of my pages fit. I'm going to have to go back and buy a 1 1/2" inch ring.

I haven't been to many. I've been to the Knitting room. They had some really nice yarn. I went to one in Plymouth, but it was really packed and cramped. The one I go to most often is Neighborhood Knits in Dearborn. It's really small, but the lady is nice.

I mostly buy yarn online...

I'd like to see the page file, if you could...
www.paperwishes.com sells similar binding types (melamine that you can paint/paper) called Sarabinders. I may order one- then I just have to print the pages and decorate! (they have other sizes besides the one listed below- I was just looking for an example.)
