“The Knitsonik Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook is both enabling and inspiring. It will change the way you look at your knitting and the world. There’s not another book anywhere like it. It is truly original – just like its author.” – Kate Davies, Kate Davies Designs

“Everything in this book is well done, from the photography and layout to the yarn used (Jamieson & Smith Shetland) and the choice of editor, UK design legend Kate Davies. What makes it even more remarkable, and what gives me hope for our industry as a whole, is that the book is the product of a successful crowdfunding campaign and was entirely self-published. If this fresh and original book is where the crowds are headed, we’re in good shape.” – Clara Parkes, Knitter’s Review

“Thanks for bringing the Knitsonik Stranded Knitting System to birth, it feels so much more like a life guide to nurturing a sense of place than simply a knitting system.” – Rebecca Marsh, Needle & Spindle

“Felicity’s formal art training (and teaching) is clearly evident in her approach to developing a clear, step-by-step system that emphasises the importance of playing with ideas, critical review and creative constraints.” – Ysolda Teague, Ysolda.com

“This book exceeded my expectations. I didn’t want it to teach me how to knit Fair Isle; I hoped that it would teach me about color and motif. It does that in such a straightforward and thorough way that my brain just relaxed into Felicity Ford’s thinking and something that can be a tense thing for me — developing colorways and motifs — was pleasurable and exciting.” – Jillian Moreno, Knitty.com

“If colourful patterns are your thing, I highly recommend KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook by Felicity Ford – it’s an incredible read. Although it does include charts and a few pattern ideas, it’s more about how to turn everyday inspiration into gorgeous stranded colourwork.”- Martine Makes, Let’s Knit magazine

“Inspiration for colourwork knits is all around us, and Felicity Ford’s KNITSONIK system can help us to capture it.”- Helen Spedding, The Knitter magazine

“Felicity knits sound systems out of Shetland wool and commemorates fruitcakes through stranded colourwork… a recurring theme in her work is going deeper behind the scenes to explore the origin of something, not just through a narrative but by using multiple senses to evoke a fuller story and feeling. Projects that relate to both knitting and sound fall under an umbrella she calls KNITSONIK.” – Shannon Denny, Knitting magazine
