Magazine availability comes and goes, but a digital edition lasts forever.

Their knitting lineup of magazines is here, and look for the term “Digital Magazine Single Issue.” These instant downloads are currently retailing for $9.99, and the print magazines are $7.99 (I’m assuming there’s shipping, etc., with those, so the price is comparable – if not higher, depending where you live – to the download price).
