Because I sure haven’t. Yeah, that’s right. Everyone else in blog land got their fall issue of Interweave Knits while I’m still here waiting for it. Why don’t I have mine? Is it because my lys doesn’t carry it? nope Is it because I’m too lazy to go to the bookstore and buy it? Wrong again! No, it’s because I was foolish enough to subscribe to the damn thing. Maybe I misunderstood what subscriptions were all about. I thought they were a more convenient way to receive a magazine you really like, usually before newstand customers could get their hands on it. According to Merriam-Webster it means: “an arrangement for providing, receiving, or making use of something of a continuing or periodic nature on a prepayment plan: as a : a purchase by prepayment for a certain number of issues (as of a periodical) …”. According to Interweave, it means never sending you a magazine, but yet having the balls to sending you a subscription renewal form.
If you thought about subscribing, don’t! My bookstore had the magazine before the IK posted newstand day. Apparently I am going to get screwed yet again in the winter. According to their site, the winter issue is due out on December 13, check when mine is due to be mailed out:
In case you can’t read it, mine is shipped 12/15/05. I’m sure it will be much later than that, since my fall issue was supposed to be mailed out in June before it was mysteriously changed to July.
