Is there a place where a needle inventory could be made accessable to be printed out. I just made myself a knitting needle roll up (it came out so good,) <patting myself oin the back> but I would love to have a way of printing out an inventory sheet so when I am buy a pattern on line or anywhere I could glance at it and know whether or not I needed the needles too or not!! Maybe I am the only one who is this A*al well anyway it is just an idea from a relatively newbie to this site!! Love Ya all

Ah, sounds like you need a copy of Needletrax! This is a marvelous little piece of software for maintaining an up-to-date inventory of all the needles in your posession (and who knows, maybe some you didn't know you had). It's made by the same woman who did Sole Solution (sock-designing software I reviewed, listed in the "Tools" section of KR). You can scope it out at: http://www.needletrax.com.

I have a copy and plan to review it in the next month or so...

How do.
Clara, I look forward to your review. Thanks for listing the link for their web site. Looks very interesting. It could be a potential "Honey, I know what I want for my birthday!" gift. Never too early to consider that type of thing!

In the interest of frugalness I'd like to suggest using Microsoft Excel. Its a spreadsheet program that is very easy to use and comes pre-installed on any PC that has Microsoft Windows. I believe there may even be a tutorial program to help with learning it. I've used it in the past for inventorying training aids and keeping track of student files.

Hi All,
I have Needle Trax and love the idea of it. I can't make myself spend the time to enter my inventory into it. Keep waiting for a rainy day when I am not knitting? Might have to- heaven forbid-have a broken hand , or something, first!
I got a small free booklet from my LYS that they made up to inventory one's needles. I asked for 2 actually, and keep one at home, and one in my car (so if I am at a shop, and getting a new pattern, I can see if I have the needles I need for the project).
Would love it if someone made a printible version of this booklet. If i was better and more patient with computers I would try to offer this myself.

Hmmmm I am really frugal, and right now after taxes have been paid I am really frugal so I looked and searched for excel on my computer and have not found it, I have an older computer with Windows 95 on it and I have Microsoft works but the spreadsheet program in it is not very easy to use......is that what you were talking about, or is there a seperate program that perhaps I don't have. The NeedleTrax program sounds like a dream and I would absolutely love to have it but right now things are tight!!! Maybe in a few months if I am lucky!!!!!

Thanks gals!!!

Hi,
Microsoft works spreadsheet is a scaled down version of excel. The help function is very useful. Don't give up on it.
What information are you looking to have on the inventory? Maybe I can help.

If you get Patternworks catalogue there is a needle inventory checklist that is attached to the order form in the middle.

Just now I was having a look at the Lion Brand website and they have a needle comparison chart that I am sure you could either print out or download and if you sort out your needles you could enter them here.
