Hooray for Beta Testers!

Thank you so much, everyone, for your wonderful response to my CustomFit announcement yesterday. I’m thrilled and blown away. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

In fact, the response was so intense and positive that we’ve actually already reached our desired number of beta testers! We’ll be reaching out to everyone who responded this week, and beta testing proper will begin two weeks from today. (Knock on wood that the alpha testing continues to go smoothly.)

The best way to stay involved with CustomFit at this point is to subscribe to my newsletter. The first group of official users will be Preview users, and will be limited in number. At this point it seems very likely that newsletter subscribers will form the entirety of the Preview group, so if you’d like to participate, join us!

Of course, you’ll be hearing a lot more about CustomFit as we near launch, starting with some rationale for the initial construction method offered this week! I’m also very excited to share in-progress pictures of alpha- and beta-tester sweaters, and their modifications of choice. Until then, how about a picture of some pretty yarn?

(To nobody’s surprise, this gorgeousness comes from Kim.)

Looks good, eh? Almost like it’s crying out for a custom sweater. :)

    That blue yarn is the blue of my dreams! What is the name of the colorway?
    Also- Custom Fit sounds amazing! I just finished the math for a basic v neck pullover that fits me using the principles in Fit and Flatter- also- I always thought I was bottom heavy until I read your book but I’m actually proportional- Thanks Amy!!!

      Meredith:

      The colour is called “Have Fun Stormin’ the Castle” and there happen to be 6 skeins of it left.

    This is all so exciting. I don’t think I’m experienced enough, so I did not sign up to possibly be a beta tester, but I can not wait to hear more about Custom Fit. I am so happy for you!!

    I am an avid knitter who desperately wants clothing to high-light my features when worn. (I am a large woman, and have trouble finding clothing that flatters my figure). If you are still in need if Beta Testers I would be thrilled to participate.
