I can't tell you have many knitting mags. I've bought with no intention on knitting anything in there. I just love browsing and I guess I just kind of find it comforting. :teehee:

I subscribe to three knitting magazines and I like them all. I enjoy the advertisements in them as much as the articles. My two favorites are "Knit Simple" and "Creative Knitting". :hug:

I subscribed to "Creative Knitting" because they had the free sample issue. I almost cancelled and didn't pay for it because me "free" issue was missing about 20 pages. I contacted them and they said their free issues were not complete magazines, just a "sample." I was confused because I would think they would want their free one to be spectacular to get more people to go ahead and subscribe.

I agree debinoz... I would think you would want to knock the readers socks off with their free issue~! :shrug:

I dunno why they wont give you a whole mag except b/c of the beancounters idea that we can give them a teaser and then they will want more :grrr:

LOL- how did you know I was at Jo Anns looking at all the knitting magazines..... I can't possibly knit from them all- but I WANT them all.

That bit about the "sample" is weird, but I've seen it in other areas- i.e. cooking magz. (you get a sample of 15 recipes with teasers for more if you subscribe...)
