I think it depends on your favorite style of knitting.
Over the past few years, I've subscribed to Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, and Creative Knitting.

The only magazines I actually used were Vogue Knitting and Creative Knitting. The Interweave Knits magazines are just displayed in my bookcase. Maybe I'll use one of the patterns one day....we'll see.

I've discovered that for me, it's more fun to go to Barnes & Noble, grab a big stack of all the knitting magazines, order a cup of coffee or hot tea, and sit down to read. I usually only buy about one magazine a month...different each month.

I really love the magazines from Europe. They are more expensive, but their designs are a nice change. Plus, it's interesting to read their articles on yarn.

Some months, I want simple designs, so I'll buy Creative Knitting or Knit Simple. Other months, I want more of a challenge, so I'll get Interweave Knits or Vogue Knitting. And when I want a fun design with a new yarn, I'll get Knit 'n Style.
