Hi, Interweave Knits multi media platform personnel:  Please, please, please consider uploading BETTER, CLEARER, BIGGER files to sites such as

I don't frequent LYS or bookstores.  With my work schedule, I spend more money on things I can see CLEARLY online than I do in an actual store.  KNITSCENE in particular is a magazine geared toward a younger, more tech-savvy crowd.  If the knitter is an introvert, SHE'S NOT GOING TO HANG OUT AT THE LYS forever and that means less access to clean shots of the designs.  I'm never sure what the newest designs are on Interweave Press from looking online at Ravelry and the knittingdaily site is not the most user friendly unless you've NEVER subscribed to one of the magazines and want to.

PLEASE consider posting clearer photos.  Amateurs are doing a far better job of photographing and posting their own work (whether their own designs or their renditions of Interweave's/other's designs).  I think your designers deserve a far better presentation of their work on a site as influential as Ravelry.  I've asked more than once if a designer had a clearer photo they could share on Ravelry than the one posted under the Interweave Knits upload and they apologize that they only have one Interweave provides them.  You all can do better.  Please.

Another summer season coming up, and another disappointing edition of a knitting publication caught in cissexual assumptions of knitting. All knitters are not women. Yet, the overwhelming majority of your patterns, discussions, focus, features, advertising imagery, blogs, are targeted to women.

I know that advertising drives editorial...editors and publishers swoon when discussing men...loss of profits, derailed copy sales, alienated core audience, rejection, too much effort required, not in my back yard, societal norms, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Do a simple search for mens singlet knitting pattern, or mens summer weight knitting pattern, or mens (any garment here) in (any fibre other than wool here). Prepare to be underwhelmed.

I like most of the designs in this issue, however they are all for skinny young women. It is too bad that not more patterns are created for us seniors. I love to knit but cannot always find patterns that would fit well and flatter my older body.
