9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Simply Knitting new knit magazine on: May 16, 2005 10:56:33 AM
I picked up this new knit mag called Simply knitting. I did find alot of the stuff was for beginers but it has a beautifull layout and great articles. It features debbie bliss and rowan patterns mostly. I know most of the knitters hear rarely use the yarn asked for in the pattern ( they use preatty expensive yarn in there patterns) but this would be an amazing mag for beginners and some great patterns for not so new knitters..........its from england so expect to pay a little more i think its well worth it.... has anyone elce taken a look at this mag? opinions?
