Today I bought a new magazine called Knit.1 from VogueKnitting.
I think I will really like it, it’s young and very colorfull, with a lot of cool stuff to knit inside.
When I came home and searched the Internet I could only find what Knit Happens Store wrote, and I agree that it’s a pitty they’ve only used yarns from one brand, Lion brand. Also, the site of Knit.1 is very boring right now. (Here is what others think at Knitters review).
I was looking for a copy of Interweave Knits (coz I’ve never seen it), but they don’t sell that in Sweden! It’s a good thing that both Knitty.com and Crochet me are online magazines that you don’t have to pay for! Hurray for them!
I just recieved Knit1 too (my wonderful boyfriend bought a subscription for me!), and I like it, although I don’t understand why they only use Lion Brand…
Eagerly expecting no 2.
Hey! I commented on it too!
And I also mention that the reason why they use Lion Brand yarns only, is that it is a joint venture between Vogue Knitting and Lion Brand. In other words, Lion Brand pays for it.
I’m perplexed that they sell it in Sweden.
I have the same problem… I live in Italy and the only one magazine which shows young and amazing patterns uses a kind of yarn that I can’t find.
However it’s hard to find out foreign knitting magazines or books because this is not a common hobby here.
Internet helps me a lot.
Hmmm, how strange to not be able to get Interweave overseas. Can you subscribe?! If you’d really like one, let me know. I would be happy to send one your way. Think of it as a way to spread Christmas Cheer!!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
