Oh, Nicoley, that's a great idea, thank you!
I've recently had to replace my harddrive and because I saw it coming, I did manage to save some stuff - but it's a lot of hassle getting everything back the way I want it.
I started keeping a record (pattern, notes, scrap piece of yarn, wrapper) but I let it slide really quickly. Well, I've only been knitting since October, and I think I managed to do it until mid November....
But I'm already keeping a food & excercise diary, a regular paper journal, an LJ and a reading journal (of books I've read) so maybe that is enough for me at the moment.
I do still save all my wrappers, but they're all in a big shuffle at the bottom of my knitting bag now.
