Those Pesky PDF's....

I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for a good pattern.  With the new instant gratification available with "buy now" buttons on Ravelry, at Twist Collective and at various indie designer web sites, well, it's really easy to get a pattern fix when you need it.

So I've bought and downloaded all of these patterns - what's a knitter to do?

Well, print them silly....

All nicely colour printed, in clear plastic sleeve protectors - LOVELY!

Then match them up with the yarn you select from your stash...

combine yarn and pattern together in those zippered storage bags, and voila.....all nicely organized with pattern and yarn together.

Oops - the Seaweed Scarf isn't a pdf download - it was just something that I chose to put in a plastic bag today - when things are tucked in boxes, it's easy to forget about them!

The scary thing about this is that I have just started -- there are all of those Rowan kits hanging around, my Green Apple Bohus, and all of the fair isles that I'd love to knit - I should kit them up too!
Spring cleaning has started here at Shades of Shetland - look out!


  1. What fun, Anne! It's like a store, with all your favorite kits just waiting for you... Love it! :)
