Inspiration Monday – have you tested a pattern lately?

Test knitting!

because wool fixes everything

I’ve been lucky to snag some really great chances to test new patterns. I love test knitting, it’s such a great way to help out designers while scoring a free pattern! Remember over Christmas I test knit my Cascade Falls cardigan? Gorgeous cardi, free pattern, a bit of say in design…what’s not to love? I’ve test knit a few hats, bunny slippers, a scarf and now my newest test knit I’m casting on is abstract butterfly lace shawl

Isn’t it pretty? I’m using an emerald green malabrigo sock yarn. I think. Decisions decisions!

If I’m ever feeling in a knit slump I like to peruse the test knit forums on ravelry and see if any tickle my fancy. I visited this morning and found all these great patterns available to test!
