Does anyone else find it humorous (not in the fun way) that Phildar is now distributed in the US by Knitting Fever, Inc. (KFI).

Oh well..........so much for that...........

Oh no! Is it really? Now it's going to be even more of a pain to get a hold of their stuff since all the shops I feel most comfortable with (either online or not) don't do business with them...oh well at least there is a really nice lady in Canada that I can get the patterns from.

Not only that, but they will not be carrying the current pattern magazines - right Rob? - nor the latest yarns (FWIW).

My understanding is that what they will have in the way of patterns is something put together just for KFI.

Really? I'd love to get my hands on some of the recent pattern books!

Stacey14 - So would I !! The point I was trying to make is that the situation has not improved for stores in the USA trying to carry Phildar products.

Yes, now we can get some of the yarns (easier?) now that KFI is importing them - but we still can not get the up-to-date pattern books/magazines (at least not from KFI).

How frustrating! Espcially since they do publish a few in english...I guess buying off their website or a few other canadian merchants I foudn them from isn't going to end anytime soon....
