    Have you found a way to manage your projects, your knitting que, etc?

    I forgot that I had set up a personal wiki right after #Rexit.

    I finished a sweater and picked up DH's sweater vest. I couldn't remember where I was and am using Barbara Walker's Top Down book. I found the wiki when I was searching my hard drive to see if I had started a spreadsheet on it or something.

    I love that the wiki is mine. It doesn't run on a platform and no one can yank it out from under me because I want to vote for Zoolander or something.

    I don't love how fiddly it is. I keep thinking Evernote may be a better solution. But EN is stored in the cloud on their platform. I may just stick with fiddly.

    How are you handling this?

    For now, I'm glad I have my notes and can finish knitting his sweater vest. He'll need it by mid-November probably.

    I started with Evernote, but I don't love that there is only one view option. It makes it difficult to easily find a single item in that particular notebook. So for now I'm using Airtable because they have a gallery view option. I can customize and easily change what info shows up on the cards and then click over to a larger more complete view. I can also link my stash entries to project entries. Yes, it's an online platform, but I also like that I can download all of my info into a spreadsheet. I'm hoping that will make it easier to move that info here if we do get project pages.

    Here's are a couple of screen shots. I have tab for projects and one for stash.

      Bunyip I'm also really missing the project notes. I did get all of my project data off R before I left, so it's all stored on an external drive. However, it takes some searching to find the project and notes. I had a lot of projects!

      I've been pretty good about my stash. Haven't really purchased much since leaving Rav except at our local/regional fiber festival. The only other yarn I purchased was some Cascade 220 to make Christmas stockings for my friend who is expecting twin grandchildren. I've been making stockings for every new family member so that she can keep their stocking tradition alive. (Her late-MIL used to make them....all identical.)

      Char That's great! I'll look forward to seeing what materializes.

    runner5 Someone on here suggested it (I think on our first platform) and it's working well for me. There have been other suggestions as well, but I can't think of the thread names. I should have added that you can also upload from a .csv file. That's how I got my stash on there (because I'd downloaded an excel file of my R stash before deleting my account) and then just added the photos that I had from R.

    Sorry, no idea, but that is the funniest thing I have heard about all the R furore. Thank you for making me splutter my coffee
