WOW! how lucky am I?
yesterday a knock at the door - my brother turned up with an ipad under his arm! for me!
appears he has upgraded and generously gifted his original to me! how brill is that?
I had a lesson on basics to use, had it set up with all my main areas of interest ie Ravelry, FB, Twitter and the like and left to read the ipad instructions and have a go!!
Its taking me a while to get used to it as I'm not terribly good with these techie things, but already I've found my emails, posted to FB and downloaded patterns from Rav. library to view and I expect there is squillions of other stuff I can do to enhance my "knitting" experience of my new gadget!
