Do you keep a journal of all your makes? I have a book, a journal if you will, always near me so I can jot down the date, needles, yarn I’m using, and patterns that I’m working on. I have a section specifically for adapting for babies, teens, and adults and I’ve finally made an official printable reference guide.
