Announcing the First Evernote-Knitalong! I joined; have you??
Evernote is an app you download to your computer, iPhone or iPod or iPad, or Android. It's a way of collecting all those documents, images, little bits of paper you've got cluttering your house, sticky notes stuck on your display, images, and organizing them in one place. So instead of saying, "Now where did I put that Kangaroo Bunting pattern??", you can just go to Evernote, search for it or look in the appropriate folder, and wham! there it is. You can put .pdf files, images, snap photos with your computer or device, create a sound file, add an . mp3 or a video file to a note, add tags to it, add a URL to it . . . I don't think there's anything you can't add to Evernote. I love it!
I use my Evernote for tracking my yarn and fiber stash, and organizing my patterns, and I have done a bit of word processing in it, too. The best thing is, you can take it anywhere, it's so portable, so you have your virtual yarn stash, needle inventory, and patterns available to you whenever you need to check if you have something or not! How great is that!
The Evernote knitalong is a really fun thing to do, and I plan to knit the Lettuce Knit Arm Warmers, but in the round, not flat. I should be able to get them done in four weeks!
