I picked up the premiere issue at the bookstore last week, it's a special issue from Interweave:
http://www.interweaveknits.com/preview/knit.wear-2011.asp

I think it is a little pricey at $14.99 but I love the off-rib cardigan and the articles on grafting and ribbing are quite detailed, like a technical class. I don't really go for the Eileen Fisher-J Jill-loose-cardigans-that-don't-close look so I will probably add buttons or closures to all the cardigans in this issue :)

I guess you have to be a woman of a certain age to love Eileen Fisher clothing. (And a woman of a certain income, of course.) I'm there in age and do sometimes splurge on her clothing. I use the Lantern Moon big safety-pin shawl closures on those sweaters. So, I will enjoy looking at the Pam Allen-designed sweaters. Thanks for the heads up on this magazine.

I agree with you on the price, but to be honest,since I felt that this was (apart from Knitscene which I think has only become better and better) the nicest publication that Intwerweave had for quite some time, I did not hesitate long. Apart from all the Pam Allen designs, there are some other nice ones that I could see myself make & wear (like the off-rib cardigan, the exposed seam and some others). The styling is really well done and the articles are good too. So yes I bought it and am happy to have it.

I hadn't heard of this one, even from the Interweave website! So thank you Minh!

And I love the look of the designs, checking on the "bonus photos".....although I agree with Minh about buttons, and with flicka about Pam Allen"s work.

It is nice to have the clean look! Thanks for the tip, Minh!

Some really nice designs - I'll look for this mag.

LOVE KNIT.WEAR! I AM SCREAMING AND JUMPING UP AND DOWN BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO MUCH!
Seriously, knitters, find this magazine. The spring/summer one is out now and the premiere issue that Minh speaks of is available only on digital download, but that's lovely too.
So many beautiful wearable things in both.
