*an Australian knitting magazine at a reasonable price
I bought my copy at Borders today - this the first issue under the new ownership and I like it. Issue #9 is about silk - a fibre I've never knit with and possibly never will, but the articles are interesting.
I particularly enjoyed the article about buying yarn locally [silk, of course, isn't produced locally - the 'buy local' article was strategically placed before the articles about silk]. Did you know that it's possible to buy Australian wool from Canada which had first been processed in Italy!! Where's the logic in that?
I always read craft magazines from front to back [including all the advertising] so I haven't thumbed through the magazine to look for the patterns, I don't even know if there are any - just for you I'll take a sneak peak: yep, there they are - looking good, but I can't tell you what they are, you'll have to look for the magazine and decide for yourself! As for me, I buy for the articles not the patterns, and I'm finding it a top read!
