Magazine
Yesterday I got a magazine in the mail called Knit Simple, and the paperwork with it seems to indicate that FCEK is being turned into this magazine, yet, at the top it says "vogue knitting presents". Plus......they aren't giving me credit for all that I have paid. Did anyone else get this magazine? What the heck????

Id give FCEK a call & see what's up. Maybe its a free copy of a new mag that they are putting out?

I've occasionally received a random copy of a magazine and it's usually one that is put out by something I already subscribe to. Just a teaser I guess.

I got the same thing today and am totally unimpressed with the new magazine...I think I'm just gonna cancel the subscription.

I do like Creative Knitting, regular old Vogue, and Interweave. That's all I'm gonna get from now on.

Okay, even though I slammed this mag, there IS a pattern in it that I want to make for a simple cardigan.

It requires a yarn that is 9 stitches for 4".

Now I'm guessing this is superbulky/polar. I have NO yarn for this and have two questions

1) cheap source for polar yarn?
or even better
2) what kind of doubling up can I do to get this gauge (two strange of light worsted, perhaps?)

Any and all help is greatly appreciated

The Skacel yarn ad sweater I am working on calls for that same gauge. It's equivalent to most bulkys {#6 in the numbered scale}. The yarn I am using is a chunky {#5 in the numbered scale}. I did up a few swatches until my tension matched the patterns, but it's turning out wonderfully. To quote my LYS owner "make sure you cover the yardage", since you will get more per ball in the chunky, but since you are doubling it, that kinda cancels it out. Clear as mud?

As for cheap alternatives, I checked at work, and there's quite a few "cheap" acrylics that will work out, but I'm not sure what kind of look/use you are looking for.

I also got the new Knit Simple last wk. It came along with a letter saying:

Quote:
"So why the change? Family Circle Easy Knitting was a joint effort between SoHo Publishing (the publishers of Vogue Knitting and knit.1) and Family Circle. When Family Circle was sold to another company, we decided to dissolve our contract. We at SoHo Publishing decided to produce a new magazine on our own called KNIT SIMPLE."
There was a bit more as to what the new mag will have, etc. but that's the main reason. I subscribe to Family Circle Easy Knitting. I looked thru the new "Knit Simple" and I don't like it. So definitely not renewing my subscription.

KNITBIT :XX:

It's a vogue magazine. I read that in another mag that I have. It's just a new mag from them.
