I TOLD you all I had a lot of stuff to giveaway!
I was gifted with an iPad this past Mother’s Day, and the more I use it, the more I wonder how I did without it! I keep my pattern charts on it, do my email, write my blog and – best of all – carry around DOZENS of full color knit & crochet magazines and books. It’s a beautiful thing!
As much as I’d love to give away an iPad (or a kindle, or some other e-reader type of gizmo) I can’t. My giveaway budget isn’t quite large enough to make that kind of magic happen. Sad trombone.
Please note, Apple, that I would be HAPPY to give away
ANY product you’d like me to, call me…
HOWEVER I can give away a magazine subscription to the fabulous new knitting e-magazine, Knit Edge
NOTE: YOU DO NOT REQUIRE AN IPAD TO READ KNIT EDGE, IT’S AVAILABLE IN PDF FORMAT!
Knit Edge is published by Cooperative Press, and the first issue features my rainbow sweater, Lopi Pride*.
I’m very excited to be part of Knit Edge, and look forward to future issues!
So here’s the thing, you can WIN a one year subscription to Knit Edge (3 issues, not including issue #1) by simply leaving a comment below and telling me WHAT you would most like to see in a knitting magazine that you’re not seeing now.
I’ll pick one winner at random, and announce it on Wednesday around dinner time (how’s THAT for vague?)
If you ‘re not the lucky winner, fear not! You can still be a winner…
Use the code “modeknit” when ordering Knit Edge and receive $1 off a yearly subscription. You have until July 31 to take advantage of this code.
Additionally, one other lucky person, also chosen at random, who subscribes to Knit Edge and uses the code “modeknit” when checking out, will have their entire subscription fee refunded. Too cool, huh?
Three ways to win!
So it’s not exactly an iPad, but it’s nothing to sneeze at, either!
*The pattern for Lopi Pride will be available for individual purchase at my website, anniemodesitt.com, this Fall

Honest photography on real people, a larger range of sizes, more technique articles and the Yarn Coucil weight designation would all be appreciated.
I agree with the majority of the comments previously…I love to see the patterns have yarns substitutions listed (that maybe the “average person” can afford). I am VERY supportive of small indy dyers & their growing companies, and even some of the bigger ones that offer luxury yarns… I just cannot afford to make big purchases of said yarns – unless it’s for a smaller 1-2 skein project.
I would also love to see the patterns modeled on various body types, and patterns that are classic in design…suitable for me, for years to come. If I knit something for myself it’s something I wish to use for quite a while (:
Thank you very much for offering this giveaway! I loved the first edition of the magazine.
I second (or third) many of the suggestions already posted – larger sizes suitable for *mature* women, adaptations of vintage styles/patterns from the 40s and 50s (which are still stylish but original sizes are tiny by today’s standards), yardage/weight information to help substitute stash yarn.
Alas, I am Ipodless (is that a word?). I would like either that or a kindle fire to help corral my magazine addiction!!! Am very interested in this new publication. Love your blog although i am behind in my blog reading-computer issues…..grrrrrrrrrrr. Thanks, Annie!
I’d like to see more information on how to create a knitting pattern.
I see so many lovely patterns and wonder,” how did they come up with that?
How did they put those pattern stitches together?”
Thanks so much for sharing!
I signed up for your combination knitting class a while back, but didn’t get around to viewing it while my subscription was active. So, I am interested in articles about that.
Also, everyone seems to knit faster than me. Are there any tips on how to increase speed?
What would I like to see in the newest knitting magazine Knit Edge? Hmmm…..you mean beside lots more from Annie Modesitt. Well first send Annie on a promotion tour out our way. Would love to have Knit Edge follow a great magazine name with being on “the edge”, fun, extra “creative”. Have a regular “on the edge” feature. Idea for knitting an edging for a scarf, sweater etc, a new idea, a new product. Just a fun place will want to look at when open each new issue. Something quick to know about or quickly can do. Take bold steps, electronic media is bold and different, don’t try to mimic the other magazines (they do all have their good points) look, be different. Good interesting articles, knitting projects can take with you when can’t take something that needs a lot of room to carry and be in your lap while knitting. Give all needed information if can’t find, afford, or use (example making a gift and the person is allergic to wool) the yarn that is suggested. Showcase different yarns, the old favorites and the newest innovations. Asking for suggestions is great and please do keep asking, that’s so appreciated!
i’d like to see more articles from designers on what inspires them, like some swatches or photos with the garment. my favorite part of any knitting magazine is the articles and bios, i look at the patterns for inspiration but seldom knit them. i like to know more about the knitters; we all look at the world so differently and find inspiration in many places. and i’d love to win the magazine!
