When I saw that Amy Herzog was looking for Beta Testers for her new CustomFit software, I knew I wanted to be one of those few who was chosen. I immediately emailed her and gave her my Ravelry ID and all sorts of other info including the fact that I worked for IBM years ago and was involved in purchasing ad space on the internet and am used to seeing roughed out software. I also mentioned (timing is everything) that I was currently working on her Asilomar pattern.
Well, an email came through on Friday and the opening said this:
Hooray, we’d love to have you as a CustomFit beta tester! I’m so very, very excited to be working with you on this. Eeee!
I could barely contain myself and my family thought I was a lunatic. I get to pick a design from these options.
I have a sweater's worth of Cascade 220 in a lovely denim blue. I'm leaning towards the first one and have swatched up a lovely textured pattern. Here it is soaking - love that my Ziploc container is perfect for a swatch soak.
Last bit I realized (and I do believe things happen for a reason) is that Amy lives about an hour away.
More to come.
