It's just getting hot and we're already talking about fall magazines! Can you believe it? Well, believe it, because there's a new, fabulous issue of Knitscene about to appear at your local yarn shop.

I've just had a chance to flip through it, and I'm certain it will be an instant classic. It's full of unique and beautiful designs. So inspiring!

Here's editor Lisa Shroyer to tell you all about it!

A special yarn really brings a project to life—in your hands as you knit and later, off the needles as a finished product. A rustic wool on steel needles; that gloriously painted laceweight; a bag full of fresh, fat skeins ...

Combining this love of yarn with simple knitting has been the Knitscene mission since day one, and now here we are celebrating the fifth anniversary of the magazine. We have come a long way!

The size and frequency of the magazine has changed over the years, but the fresh and quirky spirit that drove the very first issue has remained.

Cool designs, tutorials, and  photography—just like good yarn—can make your knitting lively and engaging.

This fall issue is no different, with explorations of lace and ribbing, a collection of cardis, great fall outerwear and accessories, and a delightful trio of sweaters by designer Hannah Fettig.

Hannah particularly epitomizes the Knitscene mission with her use of color, fiber, and construction, taking simple garments from ho-hum to must-knit.

As always, this issue is brimming with accessories and quick knits. Sure to delight are the Northumbria Cowl, the Thalweg Socks, the Gwynedd Hat, the Oscilloscope Shawl, the Xenocryst Hat, the Axiomatic Mitts, and so many more.

There are plenty of simple sweaters, with a few more involved projects thrown in to challenge the intermediate knitter.

To round out the issue, we have tutorials on customizing sock fit and understanding ribbed fabrics; tips on styling your hair with knitted hats; and a round-up of metallic yarns, which, after attending the The National Needlearts Association's trade show last week and seeing all of the amazing metallic yarn out there, are certainly proving to be a hot new trend for fall.

I hope you enjoy this issue; go check out the preview, and then let us know what you think!

I agree, this issue looks terrific and I don't think a preview is advertising (well, not the kind I object to, anyway.) The preview is useful information, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the actual magazine!

However, I am a little disappointed that the shipping cost to order the issue is so high. The site is telling me it's more than $5.00 to ship it to my (US) address. I guess I'll have to stalk a copy in my local bookstore instead.

I don't mind these ad posts for the new issues/fashion previews because I get pleasure from looking at pretty pictures of new patterns each season.

I understand that there has to be a fair amount of advertising - but I agree with many posts that I have read that Knitting Daily has evolved into very little else than advertising.  What a shame.
