Does anyone know of a knitting magazine that is aimed at slightly younger knitters?? kind of like stitch n bitch but in magazine form. I've tried a few but they just seem to be aimed at older knitters.

any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have you taken a look at knit.1 magazine? It is geared towards the younger set and the yarn it recommends is Lion Brand. Which is easy to find and somewhat inexpensive, although that is the reason some knitter's don't like knit.1.

The new issue is due to be released this week sometime and here is the website

http://www.knit1mag.com/

Yes I know the fun fur monster on the cover is pretty awful, but people really love that stuff. I hope this helped.

Well in that case I really can not be much help, can I?  Maybe there is an online store that can ship it to you. I will have a look and see what I can find out.

Have you checked out Rebecca? I have not really seen this one, but I have heard people speak very highly of it.

I'm American, but I studied in Glasgow last semester and found a decent magazine or two while I was there.  I should see if I can dig them up.  If I do, I'll let you know which they were.  In any case, have you checked bookstores?  Some that I went to didn't have any knitting magazines, but some did.  I think, actually, that WH Smith was one of the places I found a good one, so you might try checking there.

i got simply knitting from wh smiths but although some of the patterns are quite good theres not many good articles, although next month looks like it has a nice jacket to knit so i'll buy it again.

thanks for all your suggestions

Interweave Knits is an okay magazine... its particularly young or trendy, but it is far from fuddy.  Don't know where they ship to though.

I LOVE Rebecca and highly recommend it.  It's a bit pricey but I generally like most of the patterns in it so it's worth it.

You can get Knit1 from http://www.tajyarns.co.uk/, along with quite a few other US publications.  They do a pretty good service, and I've had plenty of magazines from them Smiley

If you're in Glasgow I would take a look in Borders. I'm planning on going there this evening to see if they carry any US knitting magazines. I have no idea whether they do, I just know that they have Bust and other things that you can't get very easily here. Rowan tried to bring out a magazine aimed at young people along with a range of yarns, but it only lasted 2 issues. The yarns sucked for the price, and the patterns, while sort of creative were very similar and not very interesting. They also recently published a booklet by an Edinburgh designer called pub knitting. To be honest it looks pretty dull to me, but you might want to take a look. I know John Lewis stock it.
I think we should bring out a cool Scottish knitting magazine. That would be ace.

In fact that would be ace. Hmmm... I should publish a magazine.

(points out that I know nothing of what would be involved, except that it would be fun, haha)

Want to?
