Knitting Magazine May 09 Back Issue

English 98 Reviews   •  English   •   Hobbies & Crafts (Sewing & Knitting) Only $8.49
Recently I came across a new acronym – Yappies (young age pensioners). These, I discovered, are young people who enjoy pastimes traditionally reserved for the older generations, like early nights, bed socks, Strictly Come Dancing and yes, you’ve guessed it, knitting. As a fully paid-up subscriber to all of the above, I quickly decided I was a Yappie before realising, rather sadly, that my age excluded me from this group and I was, in fact, closer to the genuine article. Still, I think it’s great that knitting is up there with Facebook and Wii (not to be confused with the WI). I was recently asked if I thought the current popularity for knitting was just a ‘fad’ – well, apart from instantly deciding that only a non-knitter could possibly ask such a question, I informed them it might well be, were it not quite so addictive, but as any self-respecting knitter knows, the mere thought of a knit-free life can bring out the dark side of even the sweetest old ladies!

Its an amazing magazine. Wish I would get the past issues at 90p special offer Reviewed June 7, 2020

Lots of useful advice

Particularly good for beginners Reviewed July 16, 2019

Brilliant app

I'm a fan of the paper magazine and this app is just as brilliant.
I didn't have any of the problems described in the other reviews ( I've downloaded 2 numbers so far) this maybe just a different version though.
