Hello Everyone, I want to start off with saying Thank You and I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to test my gorgeous Royally Sapphire Cowl. I need feedback by March 9th. If something comes up and you cannot meet the deadline please send me an email letting me know. By all means feel free to email me or message me via Facebook throughout the testing period if you have any questions.
Basically I am looking for you to tell me if there are errors in the pattern, does it read correctly, is there spelling errors, are things consistent, etc. My goal is to make sure my pattern is well written, easy to understand, fun and becomes a beautiful project.
