MACCLESFIELD, England, October 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
With the likes of Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz and Hilary Swank taking up the needles, knitting has never been a hotter topic. Capturing the mood perfectly, today sees the launch of Knit now, a brand new magazine dedicated to providing stylish accessories and quick knits for today's knitter.
Gone are the days of Mr. Darcy Rudolph jumpers, as more and more women in their 30s and 40s are discovering the pleasure of knitting for themselves and their friends and family. This new demographic demands designs and patterns which reflect their lifestyle, individuality and inspiration from the catwalk.
Editor Kate Heppell explains, "Knitting is enjoying a real renaissance at the moment, with a whole new generation of women discovering the pleasure to be had from knitting something special by hand. But what's been missing is a magazine that translates high street styles into easy-to-understand knitting patterns, quickly enough for you to actually knit and wear them before they go out of fashion! Knit now answers that need."
Knit now is packed with expert hints, tips and secrets and exclusive patterns from such knitting luminaries as Debbie Bliss, Debbie Tomkies and Erika Knight, and projects covering everything from baby booties to casual cowls. It guides the reader with detailed, step-by-step instructions, without compromising on quality and style.
Issue 1 goes on sale today, priced at £4.99, and comes with free circular needles and a Beginner's Guide to Knitting book. It's available through WHSmith, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Sainsburys, Hobbycraft and all good newsagents. The title will also be exported to the USA, Canada, Australia and mainland Europe.
