Calling All Test Knitters

We are on the prowl for test knitters. We need experienced knitters who can follow a pattern with the intention of looking for typos, errors in gauge, stitch count, places where the pattern might be unclear…. You get the picture.

We pay for this service, because that’s fair, you are doing a job for us. Also, we have high standards. (Yes, we’re picky). We have a specific set of guidelines we need you to follow and a checklist. The checklist is very cool.

If you are interested at all, please email the lovely Sam Roshak Blue Moon’s design coordinator at: and she will send you all the paperwork you need to decide if you want to join the BMFA test knit team.

Thank you!

Addendum:  Wow you guys are just awesome. Sam’s inbox is over flowing so we are good to go for now.

Thank you!

Thank you, and thank you again for responding.

  3. I love Cece volunteering!  She is so fast, and detail-oriented, and I can totally see her as a test knitter.  Especially for Blue Moon…. If I didn’t have a more-than-full-time paying gig and then that other full-time job of parenting, I’d be doing it in a heartbeat, being an obsessed and experienced knitter.  But I know I couldn’t consistently meet deadlines right now.  In about four years when my youngest is off to college (gulp), I could see test knitting; it would suit me.

    Good luck in your quest!

    Dang!  I just saw this now and am too late.  🙁 I’ll send Sam my name anyway as a backup.

    You might want to have the mayor of Portland fix the mistake in his proclamation from “crotcheters” to “crocheters.” I don’t think anyone will be working on crotches.

    I just love the bobble story–if there was one artist, knitter, person that I could spend five minutes with,a day, a week it would be Anna. Definitely a dream come trueThankfully I have her books.  How special that Two creative “soles”can match up–like a pair of socks.  Thank you for sharing the story.
