Your recent issue had the very best pattern/instruction article I've even seen. The sweater offerings with the slip-stitch patterns were great, but the suggestions for varied colorways were even better...Keep up the great work. I'm so glad I have a subscription.
We put our KNIT SIMPLE stock on the counter and it sold out withing 10 days. The premiere issue offered suggestions about what a garment would look like if it was done in a different color or different weight. For the reader, this helpful, but for the yarn shop owner, it's invaluable.
The final word is excellent. We are thrilled with the new addition to our magazine subscription library!
