Artlady,
I watched the fashion show and enjoyed it. I liked seeing how the garments fit and lay on the body. Vogue Knitting is the only knitting magazine that I look forward to getting every month.

I have never bought a VK. I have ordered one now because of seeing the 'fashion parade'. I get Interweave Knits and Spin-off now. I used to get Sandra back in the 80's which had lots of picture knits which were very in back then.

Lulubell..I actually have an issue of the Sandra magazine that I won as part of an auction on Ebay along with a ton of vintage knitting needles. It's the February 2005 edition and it has some really gorgeous sweaters in it that I'm planning on knitting one of these days. I'd never heard of this magazine before and when you mentioned it in your post, it rang a bell and I found it in my notebook of "future" knitting projects. This edition was printed in Austria, but all of the patterns are in English.

Hi Sknitter56! Does the Sandy magazine use any unusual knitting phrases or abbreviations? It's in English I know, but just curious if it uses different knitting phraseology!

There is one phrase I haven't figured out yet. Example: Cast on 87 (95) 103 sts in mango and work for border 18 cm=54 rows in rib patt. Cont in patt sequence. On 1st row inc 5 sts evenly across=92 (100) 108 sts. Wwm 21.5 cm=68 rows (22.5 cm = 72 rows)24 cm = 76 rows from border cast off for armholes 2 sts at each end once, then 1 st on every alt row 3 times = 82 (90) 98 sts. It goes on like this with that Wwm thrown in every now and then. And, then, there's the cm thing. I'm old school...everything's inches, feet, yards in my world. Haven't quite gotten my brain around cm, mm, etc. yet. I don't see that abbreviation in a ledger anywhere either. Have you ever heard of that term before?

Ahhh...I lied. There IS a page with abbreviations. The WWM means "when work measures." I was looking for that in just the one pattern, but it's used throughout.

Yeah. I haven't about the whole Vogue thing yet, but Interweave works!!

They (Sandra) did have some very modern up-to-date jerseys. Remember when everything had huge shoulders and were made of shaggy mohair? Thats the vintage Sandra mags I have hoarded away!

I like having information online. Being an ecological activist, I prefer "non-paper" methods as much as possible. I love Lions Brand because I can download the projects as a pdf file and save for later.

Typically, with any mags I buy, I scan and save projects I like and then pass the magazine on to another person.

VOGUE SUBSTITUTES

Hello,
I was a new subscriber of Vogue. I cancelled after my first issue. For the reasons you are talking about, and also, for me, frankly, I wasn't all that impressed with the patterns, etc. They were just too "way out" for me. Nothing I'd feel comfortable in.

Also, I'm a + size. They had one or maybe 2 patterns that had my size, and they were made of this yarn that was so big, it would've made me look like an army tank anyway. I got a couple of "threatening letters" from them too, when I cancelled. I told them I didnt care if I'd subscribed; that I didn't like their magazine; that I didn't get it to go looking online; and that I didnt like their patterns to boot.

ANYWAY....I like"Creative Knitting" and "Knitting Simple". I find their patterns well written, easy to follow, and if I want something easy, it's there and if I want something a little more challenging, it's there too. I'd highly recommend either of them.
