Hoping to revolutionize the test knitting process, Yarn Pond is a new platform that connects designers with test knitters in a streamlined and efficient way. After setting up a free account, knitters can search for open test calls, get a full overview of the test knit parameters, and communicate with the designer all in one place. And for designers? They can review testers before starting a relationship, create "milestones" to track tester progress, and even create pattern feedback forms for testers to fill out. This centralized communication portal aims to simplify the testing process, which is a good thing. Because happy designers equal happy knitters.
