View Full Version : which magazine should I try?

I went over our budget the other day & discovered that I have enough money each month that I could sign up for a new magazine subscription. My initial thought was to rejoin Cook's Country which is my favorite cooking magazine, but then I thought I should try out a knitting one.

I only have enough for ONE subscription so which would you recommend?? :)

I've only been knitting for two years. I love looking thru all the knitting magazines. But in all honesty to myself, the Interweave one is way beyond my abilities most of the time. I got the latest issue in today's mail. I did see a few handbags that I just downloaded :XX: :XX: from their site that I could possibly do but all of their sweaters are way beyond me.

Personally, I love "Creative Knitting" and "Knit Simple" the most. But that's just IMHO.

I like Interweave and have requested a subscription for my birthday. Interweave's patterns seem to me to be written for a wider range of sizes, there is ALWAYS a sock pattern in addition to several other cool patterns....

Interweave is definitely my favorite, from what I've seen---I've only got WalMart to look for mags aroun here, so I haven't seen but about 3! So I ordered Interweave--it seemed the most likely one that I'd actuallly knit from! Hopefully...one day...maybe.. ;) ;)

InterWeave Knits is my favorite. There is one called 'Knit.1' that is made for younger knitters like me. Hope that helps. :lol:

Vogue Knitting has been my favorite for about 10 years now. I recently discovered Interweave and it's giving VK a run for its money. VK does have more beginner projects than Interweave.

I love Interweave Knits, too. Creative Knitting isn't bad either--a variety of patterns for all skill levels.
