I currently have 107 projects on Ravelry! And let’s be real, sometimes I just like to look at them and enjoy the memories of creating each item. The advanced search* is great if I want to look at built in filters like all my crocheted projects, or the sweaters, or everything made from purple yarn. But sometimes you want to use more personal categories: gifts made for my family, lost projects, items that required time-consuming finishing work. For that sort of organization, I use project tabs.
I can get started in the project section of my notebook, by clicking on the organize tab. From there, I can start creating sets, which are based on tags.
And then I can page through my projects and add them to the appropriate sets.
When I’m all done, my new project tab is visible from my projects section of my notebook, right next to the organize tab, so it’s easy to refer back to those projects anytime I like. And now, if I use those tags in any future projects they’ll automatically be added to the existing sets.
I hope you enjoy setting up some tabs for your projects and basking in the trips down memory lane.
*You can see your own projects in the advanced search by editing the user filter to be your own username.
