Looking for a few good knitters...

This is my still unnamed vest.  I introduced this little number at the wrap up for the Great Rhody Yarn Crawl, and I collected a nice little list of emails from people who wanted to know when it would be released.  But before I can email these nice knitters, I need to get this pattern edited and before I can do that, I need to have it tested.  This is where you come in!

I'm ready to start testing, and I'm looking for interested knitters who would like to give this a go.  It is a simple pullover vest with a small cable and lace repeat, and a small amount of waist shaping.  It's worked flat, from the bottom up, and seamed together.  So that means that you will need to be comfortable with basic cables and lace, and you'll need to be familiar with the 3-needle bind off technique.  I need testers for the 30, 42, 46, 50, & 54 inch bust circumferences. (If you fall into an in-between-size, go for the next size up.) 

The vest uses 1-2 skeins of Cascade 220 Eco Wool (depending upon your size.  My sample is a 38" bust, and I used just under one skein. 

One piece of advice...if you have never followed a pattern before, then you'll want to skip this.  Pattern reading is like learning a second language, and you really want to start learning to speak that language by using a pattern in it's finished format.  This baby is still in progress.  But once it's all done, I encourage you to give it a go :)

So, if anyone is interested in test knitting, leave me a reply in the comments, or reply to my post in the Official Test Knit thread on Ravelry.
