The books are here! We've started signing and packing them up and they'll be on their way to new homes at the beginning of next week. Only the initial batch of pre-orders will be signed - which basically means everything ordered before Sunday. If you've been thinking of ordering (or want to upgrade your digital order to by purchasing the print add on) and you would like a signed copy you can do that here - http://ysolda.com/store/collections/whimsical-little-knits-2 It would be fun to sign every single book ever, but it gets complicated and takes too much time away from actually producing new patterns!
Next week we'll be taking the books on a little British tour, which should be a lot of fun. Details of each event are below and it would be wonderful to see you at one. There will be lots of samples (not just from this book!) to play with and try on and I'll be signing copies of both Whimsical Little Knits books. All of these events are free, but if you could let our hosts know in advance if you're planning on coming so that they have an idea of numbers that would be very much appreciated, and in some cases will determine how much cake there is!
