In an effort to be more economical I’ve stopped printed out the patterns that I’m working on. Doing that uses so much paper and ink. So I’ve been using the notes app in my phone to keep track of where I am and I store the pattern in the book app. This works great for most projects. It’s not working so well for the cowl though. My way of keeping track of where I am is by mimicking the pattern so for example I’ll write “Color A: 1, 2” so that I know I’ve completed each row with that color. This pattern repeats the color and rows over and over and some are the same. I may have repeated a section or maybe skipped one or two. I’m not sure. Flipping back and forth between the apps on the same device makes it difficult to have a true side by side comparison. Add in holding the cowl and trying to count sections. Yup, I’m lost. Today I’ll be figuring out where I am and, if I did mess up, getting things back in order. Good grief! I’m always getting in my own way!
Do you do things like this to yourself? Am I the only one who ends up in these situations?
