Since 2014, Felicity Ford has entered the world of self-publishing, surrounded by an incredible team. 447 Kickstarter backers enabled the publication of the first book, the KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook, in 2014. Continuously in print since then, it’s now in its third print run. In 2018, a sequel – well two sequels, really – were published with the launch of the KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Playbook and the KNITSONIK Playbook Colouring Companion.
