My Contest and some Testing going on...

We are now less than 48 hours away from my contest deadline. If you haven't yet entered to win the pattern book giveaway, you have until midnight Sunday, Sept. 30th (Pacific time) to do so! The book that is up for grabs is titled "Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders". You'll find the original post below dated Sunday, September 16, 2012. You need to go there and comment on that post to be eligible to win.

I ran across this image on facebook today. We can all use more fiber! Can't we? ;)
On to the testing going on. I have found a group of wonderful test knitters that have been kind enough to give my patterns a test run. This process has actually humbled me... as I have found out I am far from perfect! And now I understand the importance of having patterns tested BEFORE actually listing them to sell! No matter how confident a designer is in their ability to knit and write patterns, testing should be a top priority. It gives you the chance to see your patterns through the eyes of another. It has sure opened my eyes! I will be re-writing 2 of the 3 hat patterns being tested so far. Once they have been fine tuned I will be re-listing them and will be posting errata on my website. The feedback I've received from my testers has proved to be invaluable! Thanks a million to these gracious ladies! You've been life savers! I will definitely continue to have each and every new pattern tested before hand from now on.
