So - I also had a bit of plywood left over from the cover of the gas meter cupboard that was taken out - just about the right size.
Punched some hinge holes in the plywood with my Bind-it-all!
Seriously - I did not think it would do it - but no problem at all.
I covered the plywood in some very thin wadding that the chap next door gets his big books packed in (so that was free too) - then I used a fat quarter sample that I picked up at the Stitches show to cover the wadding.
Now I have a fab thick, firm, pad that I can curl up on the sofa with and make notes as I knit and I won't forget what I have done.
I think when I have used up all the pages I will just open up the wires and add new pads
