[Product Review] Boye Electric Yarn Ball Winder, Logitech K760 Wireless Solar Bluetooth Keyboard

Product Reviews
Boye Electric Yarn Ball Winder - I guess you can pretty much call this my biggest knitting-related
purchase. But with the help of a $25 Michael's Gift Card and a 40% off coupon, I got this for a reasonable amount and I love it! Though the yarn balls don't come off as firm as the ones you get with hand winded yarns (the yarn balls come off as soft and squishy and may or may not become unwound (is that the right term?) but so far, it works just fine for me and it keeps my stashed yarns in neat little balls.


Logitech K760 Wireless Solar Bluetooth Keyboard for Mac, iPhone & iPad - I got this
keyboard for Valentine's Day because ever since I started my writing class, I have been on the lookout for a bluetooth keyboard for my iPad because typing on the on-screen keyboard for a lengthy amount of time is just not good for my wrist. Everyone I know at work who has the iPad had bought the Apple wireless keyboard. They all said that they had to change the batteries every three months or so. I didn't like the idea of spending as much for batteries especially since I'll be using it more than they do. So I got this instead and boy do I love it! It has three bluetooth buttons to set up with three different devices. I set it up for my iPad, my husband's iPad and our shared MacBook. The keyboard has the same keyboard layout as any Mac/Apple keyboard and it paired up easily with the three devices during set up and afterwards, simply pressing on one of the bluetooth buttons would connect the keyboard to the device it is set up with in probably 2 seconds. There's no need to disconnect my iPad's bluetooth to use the keyboard with my husband's iPad, the MacBook and vice versa. Since I unboxed the keyboard on Feb. 9, I still have yet to see the keyboard's battery light to indicate low battery. Keyboard's tactile feedback is awesome and I think it has the same feel as that of the Apple Wireless Keyboard. Though the Logitech K760's dimensions are bigger than my iPad, overall, I am very happy with this keyboard and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a keyboard who doesn't want to deal with changing out the batteries.
