As a subscriber I always look forward to the arrival of the latest issue of Knit Now. This magazine appealed to me straight away because around the time that I started to subscribe, (I think it was 2-2 1/2 years ago?) a lot of the other knitting magazines available seemed old fashioned and unappealing. They seemed to be aimed at a different generation of knitter and When flipping through, I wouldn’t see many patterns for things that I would really enjoy making and wearing.
I’m well renowned for leaving things half-done and it’s important to pick a project that you love if you are going to spend hours bringing it to life!
Things have come a long way since then with a lot more choice out there for people who craft for enjoyment rather than necessity, but Knit Now is still my top choice. It’s full of modern patterns, reviews of exciting British yarn and interviews that get me excited about knitting! I’ve knitted up quite a few patterns published in Knit Now and have countless more in my mental ‘to do’ list.
This month has seen the addition of a new feature, small but much appreciated. Every month as I peruse my new copy, I admire the photos of the models. Not only the knitted garments they are wearing but the rest of their outfits too. I find myself wondering where the lovely clothes are from and, well, someone must have had the same idea! Alongside the beautiful photos, where to find the clothes and the price is now listed!
Knit Now have a great magazine and it’s wonderful that they strive to develop and improve it further still.
Now, my intention was just to write a paragraph about the change I noticed in the latest issue and it has turned into something much longer. The team involved in creating Knit Now clearly love the craft that they are writing about, which shines through, and they are deserving of a little praise.
