A word about Test Knitting and Pattern Editing
I want to take the opportunity to thank Chaitanya for her beautiful knitting and photography. I’m in the tricky position of having my business grow to the point where sample knitters are sometimes necessary for the deadlines that have become a part of the growing process. Tech editors, test knitting and sample knitters are the holy trinity of producing a quality pattern that I’m proud to sell. I am able to provide high quality patterns due to the work of my wonderful tech editor Tracey, and experienced test knitters like Chaitanya and Lisa. Both editing and testing helps me refine my patterns and weed out inevitable errors. When you produce any document that has over 1,000 words there are places where mistakes can creep in! But having multiple people read and actually test patterns with a fresh pair of eyes helps overcome author myopia.
That’s a long way of saying thank you and my life wouldn’t be as enriched without thoughtful and talented knitters like Chaitanya, Lisa and Tracey! Thanks ladies, I don’t know what I’d do without you.
