Rumor has it…
Well depending on which one you believe, Knit Picks beloved Felici is being discontinued (in fingering weight this time.) Now if you believe some others, all this panic is for naught, because like every year around this time KP is just letting their limited edition colors be snapped up, in anticipation for the newest round of yarn happening in the March/April time frame.
Regardless of the realities, whether you believe rumor A or rumor B the fact remains that at the absolute very least the Felici colors listed on the site are discontinued/limited edition. Now I have a weakness for self striping yarn, I love watching the colors develop, and I will often knit for a longer period because of it ( I am not sure what that says about me being that entertained by a yarn, but let’s save that for another day.) I was fortunate to pick up some Felici a year or two ago in the Botany colorway (pretty fabulous IMO) and made some wonderfully soft socks for me (mine, all mine!) I was also a bit less fortunate to pick up some Felici in the Minty colorway (to be fair I am still utterly in love with it) the unfortunate fact was the yarn had a bit of an extra dye problem and my poor bamboo needles looked pretty gross after I knit with it. Fun side note that yarn ended up getting frogged for a different reason and now it sits in my stash waiting judgement.
Anyway having realized my penchant for self striping and making socks I fell down the rabbit hole and purchased some skeins. To be fair with the exception of maybe one set of skeins the yarn is actually helping me fulfill a New Year’s Resolution (aka have items in a long-range planning box. So come the Holidays I am not running around like a headless bird.)
Of course you do.
Upper Right: Lighthouse (4 skeins)
Lower Left: Foxglove (2 skeins)
Lower Right: Maple (2 skeins)
The colors are a little different from what I expected (what with computer screens and all) but I still think they will be great for LRPP (long-range planned projects.)
Oh and one more note, Warning Enabler Alert: KP is having a sale on the colors right now.
