Okay, so I figured that this would largely be a no-brainer…I’d just take the book with the pattern in it to a copier, have the relevant pages copied, and voila, I can take my project on the train or to a knitting night or whatever.
Then I noticed that, wait a second, the stitch pattern is on [I]that[/I] page, and the notes are on THAT page, and the patterns are on yet another page…at this rate, I’d be covering the train in paper and risk losing a page or two.
Okay, I thought, I’ll scan the pages, then put them back together again in PhotoShop in a way that makes sense and that they’ll fit onto one or two pages, and that means that they’re large enough for me to read, and oh, maybe it’d be helpful to highlight my sizes and…
Suddenly, copying the pattern to work on it on the train has turned into a major project.
How do you cope with this? Do you simply take the whole book along with you, or do you copy the pages, write out the section you need, what?
