I use Google Docs too!

I have a table at the top with the class/challenge names in alphabetical order (each name is a link to the full description below), a short description of the requirements, what project I made (or what I plan to make), whether I'm done making the project (because I usually wait and post more than one project at a time), whether it's a SPEW project, how many points the project is worth, total points (I usually fill this column out at the end of the semester), and the due date:

I make the row background light purple after I've posted a project and light pink when I've missed the deadline for a project.

Below the table I copy/pasted class descriptions, challenge information, OWL/NEWT information, etc. Smiley

Project Name: Neat Ripple Blanket

Brief Description: I've finally completed my ripple blanket that I started last September. I used this pattern for the blanket and the border pattern on this page. It's large enough to cover a queen sized bed, so I used up a lot of yarn - specific yarns are listed on my Ravelry project page.

I finally remembered to take a picture of my OWL (queen sized ripple blanket), so here it is folded in half on my kitchen table:



I'm probably about half done; it's not the prettiest blanket, but it's warm and fun to work on (and my cat has already tried to claim it). Smiley
