Did anyone else pick up a copy of Jane Austen Knits? I am not a big Jane Austen fan (except for Pride and Prejudice) but I appreciated the patterns. Apparently this issue was so successful that they're planning for 2012 already.

There is also a preview for Knits Accessories 2011 on the Interweave website:

I like the rule of three shawl (Anniken Allis often has patterns in Yarn Forward/Knit) and the Whitman Cap. I had to click on the bonus photos to see the patterns more clearly, the colors look a little drab to me but it may be because I'm not into neutrals and manly colors.

My copy of Jane Austen Knits arrived in the mail! So they did reprint it and I sat down and had a good read last nite.

Yay for happiness and knitting.

I had never heard of the Jane Austen knits, but my friend would absolutely love it! So cute! Going to pass the link on to her...

Did you try Barnes and Noble? They have lots of knitting magazines including Jane Austen Knits.

Sorry Jane for mentioning Barnes and Noble. I'm placing my holiday book order (7 copies of Phantom Tollbooth 35th anniversary) through my town bookstore. I usually only browse, buy magazines and drink coffee at Barnes and Noble.

No worries! A knitter has to do what a knitter has to do. Thank you for thinking about it, though!

I finally just went to the IK website and ordered it. Even if it is backorder I can say my number is counted there. I just get so gosh darned mad when I can't get the mag I want in hard copy.




I understand completely! If you don't want to wait, I'll pick up a copy and send it to you. I work right near a big post office.

I like the square back on Rule of Threes. I'm not a fan of sharp triangle shawls, preferring a rounded or square back.

I ordered a downloadable copy of Accessories this morning. The website said that Jane Austen Knits is being reprinted, so maybe there will be copies available soon. I'm thinking about going ahead and ordering the download for it, too.

I'm waiting for a Zinnio for ipad release, but I have not seen that either. I have knit.wear and I really like it especially the Pam Allen patterns!, but I do like the accessoires of the Jane Austen Knits magazine.

for hard copies however:

I like a few of the patterns in it a lot, but I haven't broken down and bought a copy yet.

Hi Minh,
I bought it and the Knit.Wear special issue as well. Jane Austen Knits was charming.

I thought the knit.wear patterns were more wearable given my own style. I often shy about from "simple knits" type mags, but knit.wear has very interesting constructions and clean designs-simplicity of style rather than of pattern instructions.
