TooCircular when I see a hint I want to keep I highlight, and copy it and then put in in a Word Document that I have started called "Knitting Hints". It is much faster than writing it down. :-)

I actually did something similar, but I print (or scan and print) and put them in a binder so I can carry it around with me if I'm working on a project where I need the info.

I also have a copy of The Knitting Answer Book and I showed it to my two knitters. They both ended up buying a copy. There's a lot of info in it that a brand new knitter may not especially use, but they both like it because it has clear diagrams and info on how to do the basic too. Plus it's a small book so it's handy to put in a knitting bag, and it's not too expensive. (About $10 new on Amazon).

I have copied and pasted before but I thought it would be better to have a hard copy. Actually, I'll just put it in word perfect, save it and then print it. Thanks for the reminder!
That IS a good book, Marria. I'm pretty sure that's the one I checked out from the library. Unfortunately tho', that same day I discovered they also had a bunch of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's books which I had just purchased a few weeks prior on Amazon. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

Thanks you, guys!

PS Did you notice I added a picture of Beaker in the left hand column? Is that not the silliest???!!

Is that guy with the wild, red, almost flat-top Beaker? I noticed him. I don't know who he is but he did make me smile.

Yeah, Beaker is one of Jim Henson's muppets. He's my favorite muppet, so I thought, what the heck?
