Adventures in Yarn journal and notebook - made in UK
Adventures in Yarn is the brainchild of Emily from Popcorn & Crocodiles. Emily loves a good journal, but was left cold by the ones available on the market and so decided to create two of her own.
I am a huge fan of both versions. There's a large spiral-bound notebook which is perfect for logging your projects and yarns and an Out + About A6 mini diary to log all your yarny adventures at shows, in shops etc.
I particularly love that they aren't craft specific, so work whether you are a crocheter, weaver, spinner, dyer or knitter.
Both are printed in Glasgow, Scotland, on Forest Stewardship Council certified paper.
Adventures in Yarn Notebook - this has large metal spirals to bind it, giving plenty of space as your pages grow and start to bulge with yarns, project notes and ball bands. Split into seven main sections:
1 - Helpful info such as a colour wheel and needle/hook gauge.
2-6 - Five coloured sections so that you can split the journal down to different types of crafts or garment types.
7 - Pages for to-do lists, things to check out, websites/books/podcasts, yarn inventory, wishlist, yarns/patterns/projects/accessories, monthly reminders and goals, achievements and yarn tags. 102 pages for writing notes in and 2 pages of yarn tags.
Out + About diary - this is an A6 notebook that is perfect for planning out your projects, which stands you want to visit at a yarn show and which yarns you are interested in squishing. The pages are pre-printed for yarn project planning, shopping lists, stalls and vendors to visit, engagements and reminders, events and meetups, notes and, measurements. 26 pages.
The spiral-bound notebooks are 4cm high x 21cm long x 18cm wide.
The Out + About diaries are A6 sized (10.5cm x 15cm)
Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating
The notebooks are manufactured in Scotland and are made from FSC certified paper.
Postage and Packaging
You can read all about P&P here.
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with potentially inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
