knitting magazine question
I currently receive [i]Creative Knitting[i] magazine which I like a lot but I received an ad today for Knit "N Style. Does anyone get this magazine, and feel it is a good one to subscribe to. This ad says this offer is 52% off the regular price.

Has anyone who sent in for the first issue to preview received it yet?

Was it the one with the offer of a knit picks needle? I sent it in partly because of that, and had been thinking about subscribing to it. I like the patterns they have, but there's usually only one or 2 per issue that I might make, so don't buy them very often. But at $20 for 6 issues plus a needle, that's a good deal.

Yes that was the one with the offer of the needles. I think I will subscribe for the year at that price so I can get the needles too.
Thanks!

hahaha...I just got that offer too, with the free Knit Picks needles, and, I must say, while I'm looking forward to receiving the magazine, I decided to order mainly for the needles

LOL - I mailed off that card, too, as soon as I saw the needle offer. I have subscribed before. If I'm remembering correctly, they have a good pic of the back of the project in the back section w/the pattern directions. Nice feature.

knitting magazines
I have never seen the magazine before but I did find one at a recent visit to Webs which I really liked. The web site is
www.knittinguniverse.com
The magazine has some lovely patterns and for the bigger woman also. I have bought several magazines and when there isn't more than one and sometimes no projects which interest me I don't buy it again. What I do like is a lot of magazines like Interweave will let you preview the issue and then you can decide whether to buy it or not.

Nearly all the major magazines have that feature now - Knitters, KnitnStyle, Creative Knitting, Vogue and Knit Simple; you just have to go to their websites.

Has anyone received their first free copy of the Creative Knitting magazine ? Have gotten the bill but not the first copy to see if I want to pay the subscription. This is the one that comes with the free needles if you pay for the subscription.

Same here, no copy, just the bill. Looks like we sent in the request about the same time.

After reading many, many knitting magazines, I think that they are good for different levels of knitting skill and experience, and the style of clothing you like.

These are for younger knitters, smaller sizes, and a more youthful attitude in the articles:
knit.1
Knitscene
Rebecca

These are for less experienced knitters and/or simpler styling:
Creative Knitting
Knit Simple
Knit 'n' Style
Family Circle Easy Knitting and Crochet
Debbie Bliss
Fons and Porter

These are for more experienced and/or more sophisticated styling:
Vogue Knitting
Interweave Knits
Knitters' Magazine
Verena
Lana Grossa
Rowan
Simply Knitting
