Is There Some Discrimination in Knitting?

I listen to alot of podcasts - probably close to twenty. I hear everyone review the new Interweave Knitting, Vogue Knitting, Twist Collective, Knotions, and Knitty. Doesn't anyone else read Knit n Style or Creative Knitting? Is it because they're at the grocery store and not the LYS? Both of the new issues have pretty, wearable sweaters, kids items, and accessories. Don't get me wrong - I did buy two patterns from Twist and most of the stuff I've knit have come from Knitty, but I've learned alot from the forgotten mags. Does anyone else get them? Let me know what you think!
What's up with me lately? I'm trying to get the gifts done. I've made a few ornaments for Anna - they go pretty quick. I've signed up for an ornament exchange in the Harry Potter House Cup group but don't know for sure what I'm going to make yet. I've also made a couple of easy lace scarves for myself - decorative, not warm and functional.
Yes, that means that my hands are better. I still hurt alot, and it's moving to all of my arms, but I've been able to knit a bit. My feet, however, have taken over where my hands left off. Still no diagnosis but I'm still trying to be positive.
No pictures this time, sorry folks. I don't want recipients to see what they're getting!

Creative Knitting is one of my favorite magazines. Most of the stuff in it is more practical and wearable than some of the things I see in the bigger mags.

Shhhhh!!! Don't let them know about our blog secret!
Wanna get rid of that pesky address on the left corner (I know I did)? Look at the html that they gave you, and leave out the 1 or 2address codes they have you that link to their website. It's at the end of the html they gave you. :-P Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky, right? ha ha.

I don't think the discrimination is deliberate. I tend to subscribe to Knitters and Interweave, and Knitty is accessible to anyone with an internet connection.

The "grocery store" knit magazines get passed by us because I actually don't look at magazines at the store. If I don't see it at an LYS, I don't think about it.

Also, I thought Knit n Style had gone out of print. Oops!
