Knitting and The Cloud

I have decided to simply access to my knitting patterns by storing them on The Cloud.  By using cloud storage, such as Google’s Drive or Dropbox, I can access my patterns anywhere and just about on any device. 

Cloud storage is basically a server that you can access files you store on them anytime. A lot of places use it for sharing files quickly, too.

I know what you are saying.  But, Jenn, Ravelry does that for you on their website!  True, but I get patterns from other sources than them.  I want everything in a nice, neat organized file virtual file space and I want to be able to get them quickly on my phone, if need be..  I’m going to organize them by type.  I want control.  I don’t want the piles of paper patterns that have invaded the spare bedroom.  I only want to print out what I need and discard the paper later.  I don’t want clutter!

For example, I bought a used Page-A-Day 2008 knitting calendar with a ton of great patterns.  My master plan is to scan them into the cloud storage, save and organize them, and pass the paper patterns on to the next person. I can then easily access my files wherever and whenever I want. 

I will let you know how it works out.  I’m trying to simplify my life, and I’m hoping cloud storage is the answer.  Will I still be inundated by paper?  We shall see.

  1. Good luck with the cloud storage for your patterns. May I recommend trying to scan in patterns with high-resolution for you can get the best picture quality.
