Landing Pre-order, Post 2

Here is the second batch of patterns from my self published book,  Landing!

Okay, so now, why should you pre-order?

Here are a few reasons:

A limited number of  books have been printed, and pre-ordering ensures that you receive a copy.

All print book orders come with a free copy of the e-book immediately.

AND, all print book (just print book orders are eligible) pre-orders placed by August 1st are entered to win this collection of some of my favorite yarns. (I will use a random number generator to pick the winner.)

All the best,

Cecily

  1. Gorgeous! I just bought the book and it is really lovely.

    There’s a beige/grey round-necked cardigan on the washing line on page 42 that isn’t included in the pattern list. Is it one of your earlier patterns? Obviously (stupidly) it was the design that caught my eye first…

    • Ah, good eye! The company that the yarn is from closed and I was out of space for the book, so that will be an individual pattern later on:)

      • I’ll look forward to it. Plenty of beautiful designs to keep me busy until then!

  2. Wow. This looks stunning! Can’t wait to see more.

  3. I’ve just pre-ordered the book, printed off the PDF and can’t wait to cast on for MULTIPLE items!! Well Done Cecily! Just Lovely!
