- Knitscene Fall 2011 Review by Cynthia Proano
Knitscene magazine always seems to feature patters which are very appealing to knitters who want to be able to actually WEAR what they've knitted, rather than just look very pretty in photos. Some issues seem to have a very youthful aesthetic which is not appealing to me personally, but this issue seems to capture a wide array of styles without being either too urban chic or too dowdy. Some issues of Knitscene I have passed on because the styles were too youthful; attractive, just not for middle-aged women who may not be svelte. I do like the fact, though, that the men's styles which are included are stylish without being too boring, as I often knit for two teenaged sons. I have two suggestions. First, in the pattern instructions, the yarn that was used for the sample is listed but it would be much more user-friendly if the listing indicated the weight of the suggested yarn. Yes, it does list gauge, but it is a hassle to have to go look up the yarn on Ravelry to find out what weight yarn it is. This may be something that yarn sponsors would not prefer, but I think most knitters would. Second, I would love to be able to download Knitscene magazine directly into my Nook Color. I can download the jpg file that I purchased from past editions to my Nook, but I'd love to be able to subscribe directly. It is just a great way to get knitting magazines, and it does not appear that there are many that are available in that format. If Knitscene is already available as a Nook download, I would love to find the instructions or website from which to do that. **** Interweave Comment: Thank you for all of your comments. Presently Knitscene, Fall is available as a downloadable PDF and through Zinio. Watch for new ways and devices to get your Knitscene issues! ****

- Great patterns, lousy layout Review by laurie bobskill
This issue has the the most relevant (wearable, giftable, knitable) I have seen in any KnitScene issue to date. But ENOUGH with the choppy, sketchy layouts. If a pattern is worth including it's worth a full-page photo.
