Guess what I saw yesterday? Yes, Family Circle Easy Knitting, now back and being published by the Better Homes and Gardens people (who bought Family Circle). Want a review?
I used to like the "old" FCEK, edited by our good friends at Vogue Knitting. There were plenty of knittable patterns that were simple but not too beginner- great for projects you didn't want to have to concentrate on too much. The articles were nice too.
This one, though, is not the same. None of the patterns were to my taste, and some used garish color combinations. The overall look was, I think, tacky. I'm going to have to let FCEK go- it's just not for me anymore.
