So this is what I do. I use a cast off spiral notebook and write as I work, recording warp and weft, epi and ppi. I staple the yarns to the first page and identify them if I know what they are. I record everything as I weave. I keep the notebook and pen close by and stop every time I make a change. I number each pattern so that later I can mark these on my sampler if desired. It is especially useful to use hang tags at the edges if the sample will be used for teaching purposes.
I can’t help myself but Jim Croce’s “I’ll Have to Say I Love You in a Song” still just sends me—think of playing this for your honey on Valentine’s Day.
