Sunday, August 02, 2009 and spinning stash software

I am in love with my Ipod Touch. AND...I just discovered a knitting software program that is so great. Its called Knit Buddy ( It has everything I need to keep track of my stash and I can even add a photo of the yarn to remind me what it looks like. It also keeps track of knitting projects with room for a picture and to designate it as in the cue, in progress or finished. The projects part also has individual stitch counters to keep track of where you are, although I haven't explored this yet. Its perfect. I contacted, Dave, the software designer, to see if he would consider making one for handspinners. He said he had been contacted by a few other spinners and if he had a better idea of how many spinners had Ipod Touches or Iphones and would be interested, he would go for it. How do you think we can spread the word about this possibility? Help me out.

I followed a Ravelry suggestion and am entering my fiber stash as a "novelty" yarn (because it sorts by yarn size. Then they will be all together). I also name each fiber "Unspun wool" or "unspun blend". I expect I'll have unspin cotton, etc to add as well when I get to those totes.
