Looking for A Guinea Pig

I am working on a new endeavor. I am writing a magazine of sorts. Or maybe a book that is released one chapter at a time. I don’t know the details just yet.

It will focus on knitting, of course. There will be tutorials and patterns in each issue, as well as essays on knitting and some humor sprinkled in.

The master plan includes a knitted quilt pattern, which will be released one block at a time over 27 issues (every two weeks over a one year subscription).

What I am looking for today is a guinea pig or two, who will proof read and test knit the entire ten pages of the first issue. I need some feedback and a critical eye.

The first issue is ready to be tested, minus one photo which I hope to get taken this week. I need a tester who can knit an intarsia square in four colors (fingering weight) and a lace head band in bulky weight (by chart or written, preferably both). I will have a questionaire to fill out after it has been read and the patterns have been knitted.

I don’t mean to be snobby, but I would like to use someone who has been following my blog for some time and with whom I am a little familiar.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in doing, please contact me on Ravelry here or message me on Facebook here.


Update: I have all the testers I need. Thank you!

  1. It might be worth it to look in the pattern testing groups on Ravelry, too…….sometimes you get someone that is just a fast and accurate knitter. The fact that they may not read your blog could be helpful in that they’re coming at it from a complete outsider perspective.

    Just a thought.

    And I’m slow with test knitting. Or just knitting in general 😦

    • Thank you for your input. I am looking for help with the articles as well as the patterns, so I don’t think my request conforms to the Rav test pool parameters. And, I want someone with whom I am familiar with because I don’t want to start from scratch with someone new. I will look outside my circle if I need to, but I want to start close to home. 🙂

    • You got it. I am glad you offered. 🙂 I had a bit of an ephany and decided to add a mother page. I am hoping to have it ready for my testers Monday. Thanks so much.
