The new issue of knitty.com magazine for spring/summer 2013 is out. I love the write up that leads into the 1870 child sock. If you are new to knitty, of course check out the current issue, but you will also want to check out the pattern archives. You can search through the knitty archives or you can use ravelry and use the power of ravelry’s search to find the pattern you want. (It is free to create a user account)
Both of these sites are free and wonderful resources to knitters and crocheters.
