Yeah, those non-US mags can be expensive. I mean, 1 dollar has always been less than 1 pound for as long as I can remember, but it's been crazy past several years. The English mags are around $9 each and I never buy them because whenever I see them they are in a plastic sleeve so I can't even see what's inside! And Rebecca! I like Rebecca, but have only bought one as a single issue is around $16! [size=2]and i haven't even knit anything from that issue. [/size]
I like Vogue Knitting for just visually stimulating designs and photography. Interweave Knits is great, too. The others, I flip through them often, but have never bought one.
