I “heart” technology

Ipad A few months ago, I decided to get rid of all my knitting magazines and the books I really don’t use any more. I also cleaned out my stash and needles. Since I always use circulars, I don’t need straights any more.

I gave the yarn and needles to a nursing home I used to volunteer at when I was in high school. I think there are some ladies in there that might enjoy some knitting supplies. The home was so happy to get those things. And I felt good that I may have brightened someone’s day.

The books and magazines went on ebay. As someone who has been part of the knitting community for quite a while now (I think it’s a decade that I’ve been knitting), I knew these things would go pretty quickly and at a good price. The Boy thought I was nuts and thought I should just donate them. When he saw that everything, especially the magazines, were going for almost cover price, he was shocked. Know your audience, I always say!

Then there was the little detail of what to do with all that newly found money. I had decided that I wanted to get all the Interweave Knits and Knitscene magazines on CD. That way I could store all those years of magazines a little bit more easily. I also had this master plan of putting them all on my iPad. It took some time for me to really get my butt in gear, but I went ahead and put everything on the iPad yesterday.

Now I have about 10 years worth of magazines on there! Isn’t technology great?!

The little green thing is the other Corona sleeve. Moving along…
