Testers Found - Foxs Heart of the Ocean 12x12


NOT YET - Know why I typed those two words??? Well because someone asked me to post the opening for a new square but not to let anyone test it until everyone had received the notification that testing is open.  There are people that are still getting the blog in the format that is not sent through Google email.  When they get the posting, the testers have already been found.

So here's what I'll do with this one.  I'll ask all of you NOT to email me until a specific time tomorrow.  Hopefully when I pick this time, the regular feedburner will have posted the square open to everyone.  Then the first people after that time tomorrow will be allowed to test.  Anyone asking ahead of time will be told in an email - those two words...  Not Yet.   Okay - I get home from work about 5PM central time (I think it's central time) and I will check to see if Feedburner has sent out the notice.  If it has, then I will officially put an update below the picture that says that you can ask to test now or something like that.  So just keep checking the blog to see if the wording has changed above.

This square was created when I had watched Titanic and Cast Away one weekend and thought it'd be cool to make a square that feels like the ocean breezes or an island or something like that.  This pattern is what I ended up coming up with. 

If you want to be a tester, read the instructions below and let's get started! Remember, everyone who tests any of the patterns will have their picture of the completed tested item shown in the blog next to their name as a tester. So show off your talents. I'd really like it if when I put the pattern up on Ravelry, if each tester or person who works this pattern would add it as a project there so I can post a link to everyone who makes this items pictures.

1. Must be a follower of this blog and a subscriber. Not a follower yet? Sign up. Let me know your follower name.

2. Must be able to finish testing by Wednesday September 15th.

3. Must be able to send me a picture of your finished item attached to an email.

4. Must be able to send me errors of any kind you find in the pattern.

5. It'd be a plus but is not mandatory, if you were a member of Ravelry so you can add the project when the pattern opens up to everyone.

6. You can use whatever color(s) you want of 4 ply medium worsted. I'd like to see a variety of colorful squares.

If you want to test, send me an email to the address below with your Follower name. Only the first 7 or so testers emailing me will receive the pattern to test. Please don't post a comment that you'd like to test. I can't send a copy of the pattern to a "comment." You have to email me as it states. When I find enough testers I go back and change the title of this posting from Testers Wanted to Testers Found. Before emailing me, please go back and check this link to see if the title has been changed.


PS - Begging ahead of time won't help you   LOL

Great idea, I signed up to a separate notification site but even then by the time I get the notification you've already got testers!

Finger's crossed I'm around when this goes live, good luck everyone :)

I would love to do a test for you but just seem to miss the e-mails by minutes. Loved your last one the baby blanket. Looking forward to that pattern coming out. Diana
