I decided to join the UK Shared Journal Experiment on Swapbot. Another one out of my comfort zone but I figured it was worth a gamble.
Basically you write a journal entry, then post it to the next person, who writes and entry and posts it on again until the book is full or the experiment stops.
But to do this I needed to send a covered journal.
I decidede to crochet a cover. Basically a front sheet to a spiral bound notepad.
