I have a really cool clear binder I found for my patterns. I also have them stored on my computer.

3 ring binder. i keep the patterns i've copied out of books (shame on me), ones i've bought, and ones i've printed from the internet.
I only print out ones that I'm really interested in making.

I keep them in those slide-in page protectors and then use a clipboard to attach them to when I'm using them.

i save patterns in my favorites folder .... i print the ones as i am going to use them and whule i use them they get shoved in the zippy bag with the project real nice. i plan on getting some sheet protectors for longer term usage. and a file folder for longer storage for printed patterns.
Flipdrive.comis a place you can store lots of different things, including favorites lists (in case your pc decides to eat all your files )
i think a binder with the patterns in sheet protectors is great...hmmm

I have a pattern folder on my computer, a 3 ring binder, and a stack on my computer desk. I know I don't need to print so many out, but sometimes I like to read them through and I prefer sitting on the couch or in bed at night than to sitting in the computer chair staring at the monitor.

I have been thinking about getting an accordian file thingy to put some in, too.

I have most of my saved patterns printed to .pdf in a folder on my desktop, but the ones I've actually paid for DH prints them at work (our printer died), punches holes in the sides and then puts them in clear plastic sleeves for me. I just need to pick up a binder to put them in.

I stole a beat-up one from work. The plastic protector things on the front were disgusting, so I ripped them off. I got a desk calendar from one of our vendors that's got neat art collages by an artist on the left hand side. (One of the advantages of working in publishing is your vendors are printers and do gorgeous calendars.) :-D Anyway. I've been saving the part with the pretty pictures, and I cut them down around the picture collage elements and am putting them on the binder. I'll try and take pictures when I get home.

I put mine in a large 3-ring binder. However, I have not been real good about categorizing them, there all just there. I think I will try to get that done this week.

i had alot of print out which i never knit them... what a waste of time and killing all the trees for the paper... i tried to store in CD now ... chances is i only own a pair of hands... so it take awhile for me to jump into another potential knit pattern...

as you know i got at least 15 of unfinished work on my knitting needles now... goosh ! i am hopeless .. trying to finish them one by one is taking forever... maybe i should give it to someone free to finish them

I use "notebooks" with bound plastic slip in folders ( I use them for recipes too - you can keep the book on the counter and the recipe stays clean! ) I need another one soon and then maybe I´ll organize them, they´re just kind of in there as I printed them out for now...
