I took on my first test knitting gig mid November. Test knitting is for when a designer has a new pattern and they would like to have other knitters use the pattern and give feedback on the pattern.
Leave it to me to choose a pattern of firsts for me. It was for fingerless gloves (never made), with fingering weight yarn (never used) and tiny size 1 needles (never used). What a learning these posed. Luckily I was familiar with lace patterns and the stitches in the pattern.
I was so optimistic at the beginning. I got about 70% through the first glove when I realized I had made an error and had to start all over. I still made the designers deadline but it was tight and I put in many late hours working on it. here are some pics of the work in progress. The December Snowfall pattern can be found on Ravelry or at Ganiggle
the designers site.
