SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!
Hello all!

I've decided I want to subscribe to some knitting magazines and haven't a clue where to begin.

I know I can look at current issues at my LYS but often a particular issue may not grab you straight away and your inclination is to pass, only to find that this mag "usually" has wonderful things.

I'm open to content so any suggestions?

Thanks to all.

Deborah

The only magazine that I usually run to the LYS to buy is Interweave Knits... I usually find at least one pattern that I want to knit...

My mom likes Creative Knitting though

I subscribe to "Interweave Knits" as well. It's always got patterns for every level. Also, the online magazines "Knitty.com" and "Knitting Daily" have great patterns and instruction and articles.

I got Creative Knitting for a few years, but now I get Interweave Knits and like it best.

You can view the kinds of patterns in IK on their website. The patterns you see immediately on this link are the newest issue. To see the patterns in back issues click the back issues link.
http://www.interweaveknits.com/

You might also want to join Knitting Daily which is run by IK. It's got free patterns, a store and tons of info on a regular basis.

Hi nstssj - Thanks for the suggestions. I've happened upon Knitty.com a few times but have never heard of Knitting Daily. My fingers will be busy "agoogling" very soon.

Jan, you are such a wealth of information and so willing to share. So far IK seems to have a lot of weight around here but I'll certainly check out all suggestions. Thanks a bunch!

P.S. - Pssst...Hey Jan...You can be on my "squad" any old day! <smile>

magazines
I get Creative Knitting. I like it better than Interweave Knits. A magazine is a matter of personal choice. Interweave's patterns are too young for me and Creative is better for me. Creative also has sizes for the larger woman and interweave seems to stop at a point and doesn't get up into the X's. I really like Cast On, which is the guild magazine.
