Who wouldn’t like a free iPad Mini? These handy devices can be used for almost anything, crafting included. A tablet can turn into a convenient place to find patterns, technique how-to’s, and a valuable resource that connects you to the vast stores of information on the internet.
Knitters can be a surprisingly technological bunch, and the iPad Mini is a prime knitting companion. Besides being able to store your patterns on the iPad Mini, you can also take pictures and post updates about your knitting, all with the same tool. The smaller size of the iPad Mini strikes the perfect compromise between portability and visibility; you’ll be able to read your lace charts without squinting, and you can fit the device into your knitting tote. The internet capable iPad Mini will allow you to stay connected with all of your friends, knitters and non-crafters alike, while doing quick technique research or shopping for yarn online. You can really use this tablet for a large number of tasks, and can further customize its capabilities by downloading apps. After using the iPad Mini for a couple of days you won’t know how you’ve survived without one.
