My new issue of Interweave Knits came in the mail today, and I've been on pins and needles waiting for it...it's the first issue with Eunny Jang as editor!

The first thing I noticed is that it is THICK! Thicker than usual. It is sort of the 'green' issue -- there is a lot about organic yarns and such.
THere is a feature about different cables and it seems like a great article...I can't wait to sit down and read it..

The patterns! I think that there are more than usual here..including a nice pair of thick, woolen, cabled socks that make me want it to get cold already! I love, love the tilted duster (which is on the cover) and I can't wait to make it!

Not only that, but there are FIVE really cool toe-up sock patterns online...

I'm very pleased with this issue. I think that the summer issue was really a transition issue, and I just knew Eunny would blow us away as editor...

Has anyone else gotten their copy??

Really?? Oh my goodness, I am working until 9pm! What if mine is at home waiting for me RIGHT NOW?? I have been absolutely lusting over everything in the preview. Gah!!!

And I didn't think it would arrive until next week when I will be on the other side of the country. This is good news!  Smiley

I was looking at that issue in the bookstore a little while ago. I thought about buying it, but I wasn't sure how many useful patterns were in there for a relatively new knitter such as myself. It seems a lot of the patterns in there are quite complicated for a newbie! Although, I'm currently working on a camisole/tunic thing from Interweave Knits Spring 2006. It'll be a challenge for me, but hopefully I doable one. I like to push myself forward and learn new techniques so that I can gradually work my way up to more intricate knits.

I could pick it up and save it until I'm ready to make more challenging things...

It probably wasn't this issue you saw, it isn't in the bookstore until August 14th....But, usually the patterns vary from beginner to advanced, so it's not beyond you!

actually, kpuppy, several times I've seen the magazines (IK and VK) out before the newstand date. I think the LYSs and bookstores sorta ignore the rules sometimes!

I got mine today and there are a bunch of patterns I want to try.  When I looked at the preview pictures online I didn't really like anything, but seeing them in the magazine changed things.  Maybe it's the clearer images, I don't know.

Are there hard-and-fast rules for magazines?  I know with books, they're always given a "publication date" (in quotation marks because no two publishers will ever agree on what that means), but it's mostly an estimated date, and for the vast majority of books, the stores can sell them whenever the inventory arrives.  (There are exceptions, like Harry Potter, where the store absolutely cannot sell them before a set date, but they're rare.)  My impression of magazines is that if the new issues happen to arrive before the expected date, the store doesn't have to wait to start selling them.

I got mine yesterday. There are a few patterns that I am dying to try, but alas, I am nursing, so they will probably have to wait.

Yes, there are. When a bookstore or LYS gets the magazines, there is a 'display from ___ to ___' date on the front. ibunnysavetroy is right though, a lot of places don't exactly follow the rules, but I haven't seen this issue on newsstands anywhere just yet.
