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.
oh that sounds cool! yes, please take a pic if you can

I use binders
I print out a lot. But I have to admit that a lot I don't end up keeping for whatever reason.

I have about five binders and each is for a differnt "theme" such as baby, adults etc. It works nicely for me. I use the clear envelops that go in the binder and I can easily see the items as I turn each page.

Okay, here they are.

The main part on the front of the binder was from January. I used the bottom part of January on the bottom of the back of the binder. The skinny saint-person part on the front is from the bottom left corner of February. The top of the back is the top half of February. I haven't figured out how to incorporate the rest of February yet.

I haven't done anything on the spine of the binder yet (It's a 3 and a half inch binder so I have some space to play.)

Once I'm done I plan on getting some clear contact paper so that the edges don't rip.

Organized? Well, I have a whole bunch I printed out and "organized" into the back flap of my favorite knitting book. Then I have more "organized" in a big stack on my desk. I have even more "organized" on my computer in pdf when my printer ran out of ink. Organized? Sure, I'm organized!
I knit, therefore, I smile

i keep mine in a binder and organize them from head to toe. for example:


purses and other "unwearables" (cup cozies, cell phone cases, toys) all go in the back

hope this helps

I keep all of my pattern books ona particular shelf in my bookshelf, but most of my patterns are bookedmarked. I have one massive foulder called "knitting patterns". Then that bookmark subdivides into 9 different sections: bags/cozies, Hands, Hats/Headbands, Other, Scarves, Socks, Sweaters, Tops, Shrugs/Ponchos/Capelets. And then the patterns in each of the seperate folers are alphabatized.

Yeah, I like to have things organized ^_^;;
Are you alive? Good. You can still do something

WIP: Nothing. It's so depressing
Up Next: Purse for my friend (still need to get yarn)

Well I print them and put them in a binder. They are not in any order. And some don't have holes punched yet... so they are stuffed in the front pocket. But I do have my binder on my bookshelf neatly next to my knitting books. Sometimes I go through and clean them out. Sometimes I also have patterns stuffed in my knitting bag or on the bed side table.
Overall I'm really not that organized with them.
May Peace Prevail on Earth.

I have a 3 ring binder and put them in clear covers and have them divided into purses, scarves, etc. I also use divider tags and code them (each color represents where I saw the pattern (knitty gritty, Knittinghelp, etc).
