Knitting Magazines?
I was just curious to know if anyone was subscribed to a knitting magazine. I can't seem to find any that aren't...well, boring.

The knitting magazines probably have 1 cool pattern out of 10 which is an EPICL FAIL! in my book.

One of my LYS just posted that they're doing a $5 rebate check (8-12 weeks for processing) to be used on a future purchase at the LYS you buy the Interweave title from. I'm not sure if this program is going on everywhere, but certainly worth asking about if you're considering just picking up the magazine to see if a subscription is worth looking into!

I had a subscription to Creative Knitting for a year - I enjoyed it, the patterns were nice, and they always had a variety (some kids, some men, some scarves/mittens/dishclothes, plus sizes). I didn't renew the subscription because I ended up deciding that I weighed the number of patterns I had against the time I had and decided it would be better in the long run to buy/find patterns as I needed them.

I've had several subscriptions but Interweave is the only one I have kept up with. I like Vogue because of Meg Swanson's column but the anorexic models and overdone patterns are a bit too much for me. I thought Creative Knitting was anything but creative when it came to patterns. Interweave works well for me. The patterns are challenging enough and interesting enough to keep me coming back for more and holding on to my stash.

I agree this is the only one I get regularly...I might pick up Vogue now and then though if it has a nice pattern in it...

I love both Interweave Knits and Interweave Crochet. I rarely make anything from them, but I enjoy putting them on my "wish list", and both mags have great articles in them.
