Test Knitters Wanted!

I have been writing lots of new knitting and crochet patterns lately and am almost ready to publish this one for the Chunky Mitts you see in the picture above. All I need is two volunteers to test knit the pattern for me. If you fall into the category of confident beginner, intermediate or advanced knitter and you would like to try the pattern out for me please leave me a comment and I will email you the pattern. The pattern involves knitting in the round on double pointed needles, so that is one skill you will need :-) It's a good stash buster as it only take about 150m (165yrds) of yarn to knit both fingerless gloves. They work up very fast. I will need you to be able to test the pattern in the next 2 weeks (at the most). I won't need you to send me the sample knits, they are yours to keep :-)
I will eventually be publishing the pattern on Ravelry. If you're already on Ravelry you can find me with the user name SharaDesigns :-)
I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon!
P.S. If you're not a knitter yourself but you know someone who might be interested then please pass on a link to this post. Thank you! :-)

**UPDATE** Thank you to everyone who volunteered!! I no longer require test knitters for this project, but I will be looking for more in the future so stay tuned!! Thank you!!!
