Rather than subscribe to a knitting magazine every year, I'd recommend the DVD sets from Interweave called "Knitting Daily TV." Each set is 4 discs that total about 358 minutes of solid techniques of all kinds, and mostly knitting. They are invaluable, and not only for the experts. There is something for everyone.
I gave up subscriptions and LYS classes in favor of these fabulous DVD's! I play them on my TV, as well as my Sony DVD player when my TV-DVD combo is occupied with husband's interests.
