test knitters wanted. will receive presents.

I am really bad at writing and giving instructions. Or just explaining things in general. I should be sharing techniques, giving tutorials, and writing patterns, but I am not. First, I don’t feel like I have anything worthwhile to share. Second, I just can’t manage to explain things in a logical, useful way.

So far I have put on paper one mitt pattern out of all the different fingerless mitts I have knitted. Rich tells me it’s so simple that no one would ever need a pattern for it, but then I see instructions on Ravelry about knitting a square (which is basically what this is), so maybe I should just share this and let you decide. In fact, I’ve been meaning to post this free pattern for over a year and have not done it.  Now is your chance to check out Easy Garter Stitch Mitts, my first pattern. Gotta start someplace, right? If you do take a look at the pattern and find any glaring errors, let me know. I don’t really know what I’m doing.

Garter Stitch Mitts, knit 2 @ a time!

And if you are feeling more adventurous, test knit my brand new, absolutely unrefined pattern, Squares Sophisticuff. I will even give you a present if you make one of these and help me work on the pattern. Since it will probably be obvious to you that I need help. Just send me an email through the contact form here on my blog or a message on Ravelry (gwenerin).

    I was totally supposed to test this pattern out a million year ago… I’ll do it now if you want! I;ll try both out, I have some crazy green yarn I need to use up.

    Gah! I so wish my stash were with me right now because I’d totally be casting that on immediately. Maybe that will give me some incentive to move it to my new home…
