Interweave Knits usually has some good stuff...I went out and bouth their spring edition this year to knit some stuff from it.

I think they also put out a few other publications, KnitScene or something. Dunno about those.

I love Interweave Knits, but Vogue has more 'contemporary' things, I believe.

This is true about Vogue...but some of the things in there I think are pretty to look at but wildly impractical to make or wear(for me....and my boobs). Makes me feel like an old fuddy duddy--and I'm 26!

My LYS usually has a rack of current magazines for sale. You could go to yours and check a few out to see which has the best patterns and then subscribe to it.

I love...
I love Creative Knitting and Knit Simple magazines the best. I did enjoy all the other magazines for their ads but most of their patterns are beyond me so I now only subscribe to the two above.

I'm subscribed to Knit1 Magazine, which is a pretty funky teen magazine. I also LOVE KnitScene, published by Interweave Knits. It has beautiful stuff, unfortunately it's news stand only, and you can't subscribe to it.

I get Interweave Knits, Creative Knitting, and Knit It. Interweave Knits t is my favorite, though. It has mainly intermediate and advanced patterns.

Try the magazine called Rebecca...it's geared towards younger more modern looks. I love it but personally couldn't wear a lot of the designs (you know...you get a lot of curves after a couple of kids...)

I usually get Interweave Knits, Interweave Crochet (when it's out), Vogue Knitting and a couple of British magaznes -- Knitting and Simply Knitting (Simply Knitting usually has a gift with it; stitch markers, knitting bag, teaser magazines for Rowan, etc.).

I get Knit.1 and Crochet! sometimes too, though I think the designs are a little more hit-or-miss with those.
