chalkstone sweater

some of you know, we had already a testing round for this 
sweater .....last year....
due to some unclear parts of the pattern i set it aside
and did not look back (shame on me!!!)

with some time inbetween and a few kicks (Thank you Liz!)
i rewrote the tricky part of the pattern and made a chart
for the upper part of the sweater

as my usual testing group tested it aldready, i do not want
to bother them with another test round of the same sweater
so i'd like to ask here for a little help

i need at least 1 tester for each size

xs (38 in finished bust)
s (41 in finished bust)
m (44 in finished bust)
l (47 in finished bust)
xl (50 in finished bust)

the sweater is designed to be worn with approx. 4 in of
positive ease

yarn. light worsted weight 20 sts x 25 rows in Stockinette
on 4.5 mm [US 7] needles

if your interested in testing the sweater and way more important
if you think you can make this rather quickly (i thought
of 4 to 5 weeks?) please pm me on rav with the size you'd 
like to knit or email me

thank you so much for your interest in testing this sweater!

think i have enough testers and hopefully they will
go through the pattern without the ususal mess i produce
when it comes to write a pattern.... ;)

THANK YOU in advance

a sign of life

there's a reason for me being absent so loooong

....a good reason.....
....a very good reason....

i got married!!!!!!

it was a small but amazing wedding with our families and
some very good friends ....
hope you all understand that there were other things to do
the last weeks,...i promise to post more constant now ;)

now to the knitting life (hahaha!)
currently in testing is a new sweater

and it seams that this time my testversion of the pattern isn't that messy as my testversions usually are, so i hopefully
can publish the pattern in mid/end of april

for today i need to quit (packing my life in boxes still 
goes on), just wanted to let you know that i am still alive

all the best
