Testers Found - Kids Hats


I am opening up the testing now but as it is after midnight, I'll be headed off to bed however, feel free to read below and if you want to test, email me at the email address below.  I probably won't be sending out the pattern or notifying testers regarding their testing status until tomorrow afternoon when I get home from work.

There are two hats to be tested in the same pattern.  One for preemies and one for babies up to toddlers. You will be given 1 of 4 versions to work.  You are free to work more than one but your input will be expected on the version that you will be asked to work.  ie... preemie hat without roll brim, preemie 2 color hat with brim.  Get the drift?  Start thinking of embellishments as currently in the pattern there is a pompom and a bow.  I'm going to probably include a small flower also.  If you have a suggestion, email it to me also.

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. If the title has been changed, PLEASE do not email me asking to test. If you are currently testing an item and I haven't received your picture yet as you can not ask to test this item.

1. Must be a follower of this blog and a subscriber.
2. Must be able to finish testing by Friday April 29, 2011
3. Must be able to send me a picture of your finished item attached to an email. People not following through and sending me a picture or not posting on Ravelry will no longer be able to test future patterns.
4. Must be able to send me errors of any kind you find in the pattern.
5. It is mandatory as of January 23, 2011 that all testers add their test projects on Ravelry after I post the link to the pattern. Once I post the pattern, you'll need to go back to Ravelry and link it to the proper pattern. If you posted your project ahead of time, it won't be linked to the pattern without using the exact name I called the pattern once it was posted. Anyway, believe me, I will be checking. If 10 people want to test, there should be 10 projects on Ravelry.
6. You can use whatever colors of yarn you'd like but the yarns should be 4 ply medium worsted weight. 

If you want to test, send me an email to the address below with your Follower name. Only the first people emailing me will receive the pattern to test. I respond to all requests. If you don't receive a response, send another email as your original email may have gone into spam.

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. Don't send me a comment through the Google feed that you want to test. You must use the email address below.

Look like I sent my email request too late. You already changed it to testers found. Will you be posting the pattern after testing is complete? I hope so.

Angie - If you have sent your request - you will be one of the testers. I woke up to about 15 requests so I thought I should at least update the blog that I had found enough testers however, I have not notified people who requested to test and won't until tonight so don't despair.
