Knitting Patterns

So...I've noticed that there are several really well done designs that are being rejected by the paper magazines that should really be accepted. Wonderful designs. Not the crap designs that I look at and wonder what drugs they were doing when they were designed. And, I mean classic patterns that last through the years when I say wonderful. Patterns like:

The Deep V Argyle Vest from Eunny


The Alishar pattern by Elizabeth Morrison

It boggles the mind that IK and Vogue Knitting can't be bothered with patterns like this, yet they are the ones that classic knitters want. Patterns that are worth making because they aren't going to be in the rubbish bin within a year (or less) of completion. As opposed to the patterns that make blogs like "You Knit What?!?" so very prolific.
