Work in Progress Reminder Cards

Pinterest - Short

Are you like me and work on multiple projects at a time? Unfortunately, this can get me into trouble at times. I had started a blanket when we found out our friends were expecting their first baby. It was in more of a boy theme and we found out they were having a girl, so I shelved that blanket for a later time. About a year later I finally decided to finish that blanket. I knew what pattern I had used but I was pretty sure that I had upped the hook size. I did a row and it looked like the hook size was right so I continued on and finished the blanket. I laid it out to take a picture of the finished project and was horrified to see that I had been wrong about upping the hook size. One end of the blanket was definitely wider than the other, it wasn’t hugely wider but enough that I noticed. That blanket is now one my daughter uses for here babies.

To keep this from happening again I made some cards with the basic pattern information on them to refresh my memory the next time I pick up the project. I thought some of you might also benefit from these so I’m sharing them with you!

I print out a few sheets of cards at a time so I have them on hand. I prefer to print mine on cardstock for the stability. I also punch a hole in the corner so they can easily be tied to my projects so they don’t get lost. Now I should be saved from ever having to experience fat butt blanket syndrome again. I hope you also find these useful and save you from blankly staring at a long left project wondering where to begin again.
