I love Doane Paper, for those that aren’t familiar with it yet it is, simply put, grid+lines. It combines (slightly darker) lines over a very small grid so you can use it to keep notes and sketch out diagrams on the same piece of paper. You can read my previous thoughts, including some examples of what I’ve been using the paper for. I find it very useful for knitting charts and webpage layouts.
I’m very excited to hear about the notebook format as it is small enough (3.5″x5.5″) to keep one in my bag, and on in my knitting bag to capture those moments of genius that might be lost of the only thing nearby to sketch on is the margin of a free weekly paper. The original is a regular writing pad size, bound at the top with perforated pages so you can tear them off cleanly. You can buy either in packs of three, the notebooks are $9.50, and the writing pads are $9.95.
If you’d like to try it out Doane Paper offers free downloads (bottom of the home page) of either a PDF or JPG format that you can print out at home. Super nice eh?
