knitting magazines
What knitting magazines do you subscribe to? I have been knitting for a year and I say I won't buy any, but every time a new issue of Vogue Knitting or Interweave comes out, I have to have it. ALso, I have purchased Knit 1 and have seen some cute patterns in others. If I could only subscribe to three, what would it be. My 40th bday is coming in August and I thought it would be nice for my husband to get me several subscriptions

Interweave Knits. I've not even made anything from them (yet), but I enjoy looking anyway.

I used to have a subscription to Creative Knitting, but decided I'd mostly likely never make anything from that one so I switched.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Right now I'm getting Interweave Knits and Knit N Style.

I don't think Knit 1 is published any more.

Mirl56 at Ravelry, too.

My library carries both Vogue Knitting & Interweave Knits. So I either read them there. Or check out the older issues for a week. I do like their patterns.

I have interweave knits and a virtual subscription to Creative Knitting. Personally....Interweave is the best. I find like to flip through Vogue, but am not all about high it doesn't interst me enough to get a subscription...

Interweave Knits and Knitter's Magazine have the best articles on technique. There are more patterns available via Ravelry than I can ever knit, so I look for patterns there rather than in knitting magazines.

I have to admit I am a magazine junkie. I subscribe to Vogue knitting, Interweave Knits, Creative Knitting, Knit n style and I am saving up to subscribe to the UK's BEST knitting magazine, Simply Knitting. It cost 108.00 to get it here in the US. But it is my absolute FAVORITE. I love the Alan Dart patterns! I bought 1 issue of The Knitter but I didnt like it. I know that's a big surprise! LOL I used to get Knit 1 but didnt like that one either.
