🌟✨Mérida Shawl ✨🌟
Aujourd'hui sort sur Ravelry ce magnifique châle de Marion alias @ioarma que que j'ai eu l'avantage de tester. Il est beauuuu ! J'aime le style, les couleurs... Un vrai coup de cœur ! 😍
Déjà, pour le patron que j'ai adoré tricoter. Les différents sections rythment bien le travail, du coup on veut toujours passer à la section suivante, on ne s'ennuie jamais et donc le travail progresse vite.
Et j'ai appris encore plein de nouvelles techniques avec ce châle et tout est très bien expliqué dans le patron.
J'ai aussi adoré tricoter les belles laines de @petit_bout_de_laine. Merci pour ton aide quand au choix des couleurs, l'association est parfaite et le résultat me plaît énormément.
Pour info, j'ai utilisé le coloris terra, sous le sapin et caramel au beurre salé en sweet'fing.
Et puis la forme permet de le porter en étole sur les épaules ou en écharpe autour du cou.
Y'a pas qu'à moi qu'il a plu d'ailleurs puisque ma fille @manon_zbrt, avec mon accord, me l'a chippé et en a fait sienne !
Merci Marion pour ta confiance, tes recommandations, ta gentillesse 😊 et merci Audrey pour l'aide apportée, j'ai bien apprécié. 😊 .
Did you know that when your testers upload a photo of their finished test item to Yarnpond, they can clearly specify whether or not you're allowed to use that photo for your marketing? 💙⠀
A little green downwards arrow next to the image thumbnail means you're allowed to download it (and it's a download link, too!). If there's an orange triangle next to it, that means that the tester wishes to remain anonymous when you post the photo (so you shouldn't show their face, and shouldn't link to or tag them) 💙⠀
Keeping track of everyone's wishes regarding image usage can be just another fiddly task in the pattern testing process, but Yarnpond makes it clear and simple! 💙⠀

This gorgeous Woven (English version) test knit is from VivienneNVS on Ravelry. It’s her second one and she beaded it. I love it so much! The pattern is coming very soon - the test knit deadline was November 30, but most everyone is finished already! #knitlove#knit#testknit ❤️
Excuse the ‘vintage’ carpet, but here’s the latest knit off the needles, just need to choose the buttons and then it’s good to go. It’s a test knit for @woolmadeshop pattern coming soon so watch this space... I’m totally in love with this pattern and I’ll definitely be making more for gifts!!! #testknit#knittersofinstagram#theknitoveralls#rowanhemptweed
Getting ready to cast on a big cozy sweater in my favourite bulky wool ~ Custom Woolen Mills (thank you @wetcoastwools for the super speedy delivery!). I’m really excited about this sweater ~ a test knit of Jane Richmond’s beautiful new pattern 💛 #customwoolenmills#testknit#prarieseafusionyarn
Are you looking for a quick holiday project? I have the answer with my Post-Shift Mitts! These mitts are knit with sport weight yarn and US6/4.00mm needles. This would be a perfect way to use your favorite scraps especially if you knit #theshiftcowl by @dreareneeknits!
I would like to have any tests completed by November 28th. If you’re interested, please send me a message on here or Ravelry. Here’s a link to my post: https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/leighbeaknits/3853706/1-25
Another beauty from the creative mind of @malihadesigns: A Shelter from the Cold Shawl, knit in Quince and Co. Chickadee. It has easy garter stitch, interesting lace, fun bobbles and a simple border - all that and a neutral colourway add up to a very wearable accessory. Available now on ravelry. #testknit#malihadesigns#ashelterfromthecoldshawl#quinceandcochickadee
Putting the finishing touches on this one today. Can we talk about how cozy this cuff is?! It’s @pluckyknitter halo worsted and it’s the most scrumptious thing ever. Seriously can’t wait to show y’all all this gorgeousness. #testknit#plucksterprojects#yarnlove
I am so, so honoured to be contributing to the first issue of Yarn People, coming out towards the end of this month. Babs and Katie are putting together an amazing publication and as a contributor I find myself in some excellent company! Head to the @yarnpeople profile to read more about it 💙💙💙⠀
-- Repost from @yarnpeople -- ⠀
One of our Guest Contributors for @yarnpeople Issue 1 | Lace is Tineke Corin of @yarnpond and @kniterator She has written up and excellent tutorial about how yarnpond can help designers run test knits. (In Issue 2, she written about who test knitters are and how they help with the process of knitwear design.)⠀⠀
Like with all of our contributors, we've asked Tineke how her identity and her making meet. Here was her reply.⠀⠀
"I'm a New Zealander by birth, Dutch and English by blood, British and Swedish by naturalisation. I felt a lot of otherness as a kid in New Zealand, having an unpronounceable Dutch name and coming from a family full of foreign foods and accents. ⠀⠀
And as if that wasn't enough otherness to deal with, as a teenager I threw myself into studying computer science, thereby heading into an adult life of being the Only Woman On The Team. ⠀⠀
After working as a software engineer in various different industries, I started trying to find ways to use my skills to provide technology solutions for knitters and knitwear designers. ⠀⠀
That led me to launch Kniterator (an online pattern generator) in 2016, and Yarnpond (an online platform for managing the testing of knit and crochet patterns) in 2018. ⠀⠀
My passion lies in that place where technology smooths the path of creativity!"⠀⠀
Yarnpond is free for testers to join (both knit & crochet), and designers who purchase Issue 1 will find a code for 25% off one test for designers. ⠀⠀
