for those of you who are knitterly inclined....

I have a new design in the pipeline and am looking for testers.  You can find my posting on Ravelry here if you are interested.  It knits up pretty quickly and is quite mindless and easy for a good Summer knit.

Here are the details:

Knit sideways & slightly asymmetrical in shape incorporating I-cord, a cable motif running along one edge and simple yarn over lace.
Deadline: August 24, 2015
Level: This is a good pattern for an adventurous beginner and experienced knitters alike, since it is simple enough but contains some basic cables to keep things interesting.
Samples knit with: 
Fingering Weight Version: 
Quince & Co Finch (100% American Wool; 
221 yards/50g): Aleutian 148 colorway 2 skeins. 
442 yards total 
Finished Dimensions: 56” x 22”
Sport Weight Version: 
Cosymakes Snapdragon (100% Wool; 415 yards/

YARN: Fingering Weight Version:

Fingering Weight Version:

Sport Weight Version: 
US#9 (5.5mm) 24” circular and double pointed needles (dpn)
NOTIONS: waste yarn; stitch markers; cable needle; darning needle
GAUGE: fingering weight: 20 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches 
in garter st 
sport weight: 22 sts and 33 rows = 4 inches
Create a project page (list yarn and needle size), add at least one WIP photo, provide detailed feedback to me and report any errors, request help if needed, finish by deadline and post completed pictures and dimensions to your project page.
Interested?: Please get me your email address and let me know a bit about yourself. Let me know which yarn weight version you are interested in knitting (fingering or sport). 
I appreciate your help with my newest design.
