e-reader + knitting = AWESOME!

I recently got a Kobo Wireless ereader to test out how my love of books and reading would go in a compact format.  I was curious as to how I would go reading from a screen rather than a book, however any fears I may have had about the compatibility between myself and an ereader were quickly made redundant as I found a new love for this piece of technology. The screen is so easy to read and I have to admit - I have been converted!!

What does this have to do with knitting I hear you say??  Well, I have started loading all of my pdf patterns onto it which is useful because I always seem to forget to print out my patterns, or I lose a page, or I forget to take my pattern with me... The other advantage is that I can zoom in on charts and the ereader always remembers what page I am up to on the pattern.

When I got the ereader, I wouldn't have thought that it would have come in handy for my knitting - who would have thought!!
