Favorite knitting magazine
I was just looking at the kal and saw someone posted a hoodie from Fall 2006 issue of Knit Scene Magazine. I've been tempted to get a magazine but don't know which one and I have so many projects and there are so many free pattens and books that I just haven't done it yet.

I did purchase one issue of Knit Simple (I think) because I found the sleeveless sweater I wanted to make.

Does anyone get any magazines and what do you think?

Right now I'm making a hoody for a one year old. I am on the hood then to attach and I'm done. If I were doing it for anyone other than I baby I would have done a lot more ripping out and starting over. I got that pattern from Lion Brand xxx

Interweave Knits is my favorite, but they don't have many beginner patterns at all, so if you are a beginner, I would suggest Knit.1, or Knit Simple, they are good ones.
One of many knitting guys.

I get Knit Simple, and Creative Knitting. I'm probably what I'd call, an adventurous beginner.

I just subscribed to Knit Simple. I saw it at my LYS and thought it was more my speed.

I like
My favorites are Knit Simple and Creative Knitting. I'm an advanced beginner and they have lots of projects that I can do.

I use to subscribe to ALL the other knitting magazines but they are just eye candy for me. They are too advanced so I did not renew my subscriptions this year.

Lando puts out a quarterly pattern booklet called Woolgathering.

Vogue Knitting is my favorite. Then Interweave Knits. But I haven't been doing this for so long and haven't gone through more of a few years of mags (by looking at back issues), so things may change.
