KnitPicks has my vote based on shipping speed alone – I ordered this yarn only two days ago, and here it is. That is amazingly fast! This is the first time I’ve seen the Felici yarn in person, and already I’m pleased with it. It feels very soft and smells deliciously of wool. The only disappointment I have is that the skeins don’t begin with the same colour, so I’m going to have to skip a few stripes of one in order to make matching socks with the stripes properly lined up. It will be incredibly difficult to keep myself from casting on for the new Jaywalkers tonight. I haven’t been this excited about starting a new pair of socks in a while!

When I told Pirate-Husband about this yarn, he quipped, “If you knit the socks for me, then you could be The Time Traveler’s Wife.” *groan* Awful.

    You haven’t ordered from KnitPicks before now? I get from there all the time. Their shipping is super quick! I ordered my yarn maybe a couple days before the festival and they came in on Monday.

    I’m not sure if I want to try to match up the stripes on the socks or not. I probably will, because I’m anal like that, and then Sam and Efrain will tease me like they did with my Kroy socks.

    This is the first time I’ve ever liked any color of Felici, so I’ve never worked with it. In fact I like a few of the colorways this release so I hope that I like working with it so I can buy more!

      I’d only ordered from KnitPicks once before, but it was an order for my mom and so it was delivered to her house; I didn’t know how quickly it had gotten there. The website said 5-14 days, so I was expecting it some time next week.

      I will definitely match up the stripes, just like on the other stripy Jaywalkers I knit. It would drive me crazy to have unmatched stripes!

      Felici is softer than I had thought it would be. I may have to break my ‘no new projects until old ones are finished’ vow to cast on for these.
