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.
