Does anybody know when we can expect to see Knit It magazine out on newsstands? Or has anybody seen it? The last issue I have says to display until about April 24 so I would've thought we'd have seen the newest issue by now?
I thought Knit It was the Better Homes and Gardens publication that only comes out a few times a year. In fact, I kind of thought it only came out twice a year. I really like it because I find it (and Creative Knitting) a nice balance to Vogue and Interweave knits, but it drives me nuts that it is so hard to find. I just want to be able to subscribe and forget about it until I get the delightful surprise in the mail.

I got an issue of this last year and it was great. The other day I saw an issue in my grocery store, but after thumbing through it I was kind of disappointed. There wasn't much good in there this time. I checked online, and Knit It is a collaboration of Better Homes and Gardens and Lion Brand. Here is a link where you can get patterns from the magazine. http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/lionbrand/knititPatterns.cgi

I see a new one in my local Wal*Mart every time I go there, which is once about every month.

That might be another mag. I think Knit It only comes out twice a year. Most of the rest are every other month, some are quarterly.

Hmmmm...if it only comes out twice a year I guess I'll stop hunting for it so hard! I guess I thought a magazine would normally have a display until date that was fairly close to when a new issue would be out.

I also think it comes out only twice a year and my bookstore thought the next one would be out the end of August or early September.

I have made myself CRAZY looking for this magazine! UGH! I keep thinking there must be a way to subscribe but, since I have a habit of tearing out all the cards in a magazine before I read it, I can't figure it out. Grrrrrrrrrr..............:hair:

On the Lion Brand site they state (in the red writing) that the magazine is only published once a year with no subscriptive services.
I have also driven myself crazy looking for this magazine and trying to remember when it comes out so I can hunt it down. You definitely can't subscribe. I e-mailed the publisher to ask. I'm not sure that all the patterns end up on the lionbrand website, but that would be great if they do.

So, is the issue that's now showing on the Lion site the latest? I need to have it! NOW!:tap:

Looking at back issues of the Lion Brand Newsletter that is a cover shot of the 2005 issue. I think in 2006 they switched over from being an annual magazine to a bi-annual magazine. http://cache.lionbrand.com/Newsletters/25349.html
However, I cannot find a cover shot for the Spring/Summer 2007 issue of the magazine. The latest I could find was the Fall 2006 issue on eBay doing a back issue magazine search.
