New Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine
I got the premiere issue this morning at B&N. Has anyone else gotten this? There are some gorgeous sweaters/shrugs, etc.

I guess that's the one I picked up at Hobby Lobby. They do have beautiful sweaters in there.

I bought it today! I have never knit a sweater before, but there are 3 in there that would look great on my son, so I'm willing to find some courage and try a sweater. Soon. But I love the magazine!

I also bought it but I am wanting to knit the pillows for each of my girls, I like that each letter is graphed out already.

I also bought the Simply Knitting from Britain and I love that one also. It is not laid out so much like a knitting mag though, it almost reminds me of the mag First for Women but in a good way.

I saw that Simply Knitting at Borders, but it was sealed in that plastic wrapper or whatever you call it. I hate not being able to see what is inside!

I saw it there too, and one of them was out of the wrapper; don't know if the store did it so people could get a look and hopefully buy it, or someone took it out. Didn't see the plastic anywhere.

I don't know about the most recent issue, but the wrapper just opens and seals up again on the bottom back so you don't have to rip it off--I've taken other magazines in bags up to the customer service/help desk area and asked that they be opened so I can look before I buy, it's never been a problem.

Mine was also sealed in plastic but it was sealed with some knitting clip and the next issue will come with "a yarn tidy bag" (if you are knitting with 3 skeins of yarns, it will hold them a seperatly so you do not get them mixed up) and there is a pattern from Alan Dart-a cowboy. I am thinking of getting a subscription to it, well that in Interweave Knits!

My LYS store ran out and I was in A.C.Moores and they had lots of copies and it was cheaper by a dollar. I just have to remember that the patterns are British and not all the stitches are the same.:aww:

I love Simply Knitting! The free gifts with each issue are pretty nice. I got some great cable needles, bobbins, bamboo needles. And the most recent, the yarn tidy is really nice! I've been using it all weekend. I may just go back to the book store and pick up another.
