How Do You Read a Knitting Mag?
I don't just pick up and read front to back. First of all I like the fun essay at the back of the mag if there is one. Often I'll read it more than once.

Secondly I like to go front to back just looking at the photos and dog-earing anything that appeals to me.

Thirdly I read articles of interest.

How do you do it?

I read them...
I usually look quickly at every page. I LOVE all the yarn advertisements. Then later on I go back and read from cover to back..but not necessarily all at one time. I LOVE all my knitting mags.

I read any magazine the same way really, back to front. I don't know why, but I always loved to read them backwards. haha.

I usually use my eyes to read my knitting magazines...hahaha...Couldn't resist...But seriously, I typically go straight to the patterns then flip through it to see if anything else interests me enough to read.

LOL me too. My DH always gets on me about that. I guess that's why I always read the back page first.

I go back to front, too! I finally figured out that I just prefer to hold the magazine in my left and and flip with my right. I get a look at the patterns and articles and then, when I have proper time, I go through a bit more carefully
