Yee Hoo! Woo Hoo!! If excitement was a big, round, red balloon, I would have popped by now. It’s just that exciting. Let me explain. Some of you may know that the ever-talented Ms. Stefanie Japel (of Glampyre Knits & Fitted Knits fame) runs her patterns through a Test Lab before she publishes the pattern for purchase. A while back, I signed up for the Test Lab and basically resigned myself to not really being able to get a chance to try one of her patterns. Well, Holy Surprise Batman! I get to test her newest pattern! I can’t really talk about it, top secret test lab stuff you know, but you can see a pic of the new design on her blog. I’m knitting it with some Berocco Nostalgia from my stash (that’s the milk chocolatey stuff next to this morning’s iced caramel mocha) that I couldn’t figure out what else to do with, plus the gauge is perfect, and I’m hoping it does her pattern justice. I’ve got 2-3 weeks to get it knocked out, so wish me luck! Thanks for giving me a shot Stefanie! It’s a truly amazing opportunity and I’m totally honored!
