Test Knitting

I have two favourite designers on Ravelry
One makes amazing childrens clothes and has the easiest patterns to read that I have ever seen
The other makes amazing beanies and mittens and is just starting out as a designer
So you can imagine I'm always on their blogs seeing what the latest creations are and putting my name forward for testing
Unfortunatly I'm always in the wrong timezone or I've had a few days detoxing myself from Ravelry's mystical powers...
... and someone will message me
... and I'll miss the chance
So gutted!!!
Anyway this time I was in! I got to the message early enough and now I've got the chance to be a test knitter for Katja!
I was a test knitter once before, but I think the project was not the easy level stated
I made the pattern as specified, sewed it up very carefully and then my brother stole it
Worst of all, he wears it inside out because he says that is meant to be that way
Its not. I know this because I made it
Anyway, remember I'm doing a Hat Marathon to de-stash?
This fits in perfectly with my Hat theme - yay!

I've made the Tamora Hat

I must say the pattern is beautiful

Its that kind of one that fits into the nice wear to church hat category, not the "I'll just throw this on and wear in the bush" category

I finished the hat, took photos, had it stolen off me by a family member who proclaimed it was now hers

And I left my camera behind

I took tons of pictures


So you'll just have to wait and see my photos until the end of my hat making spree

I've made three hats so far and am working on the fourth

Hats made: 3 


  1. Aww, you're so sweet! I'll definitely let you know about any future test calls especially if they involve hats! Aaand I'll of course consider the huge time difference, haha. ;)

    I'm really glad you enjoyed testing the Tamora hat! Too bad about the camera, though. Looking forward to seeing pictures!

    1. I'm in to test anything :-)
      I know I was soooo upset when I realised I didn't bring home my camera!
