For me, our Felici yarn line is like a box of Godiva chocolates. I am always drawn to each year’s new collection of colorways. But, as I discovered a few weeks ago. I’ve lost my enthusiasm for stripes.
I told you about my “sock saga” a couple of weeks ago in my podcast. It was painful but I am absolutely thrilled with my Groovy socks.
I spent an entire morning using Ravelry’s wonderful database to find more sock patterns using Felici but not making plain stripes. I’m very happy with the results of my search. I’ve started a second pair of socks and as I’ve been knitting them, I decided to serialize my little Felici adventure. As I finish each pair of socks, I’ll tell you all about whatever little challenges I met and tricks I might have worked out to make it even easier for you to knit them.
By-the-way, the Groovy socks are crazy easy to knit. The jagged edges are achieved by a simple two-round repeat. Lovely!
The only tiny snag in my Felici serial plan is that I have only three colorways with me down here in Mexico. Luckily, we have friends coming down to visit in March. I’m going to have four balls each of Jellybean, Splash and Spooky sent to our friends’ home for them to bring down with them. That and a few new books that look tempting.
