I am an attorney who specializes in child welfare law in Texas.  I am appointed by the courts to represent children who are in foster care.  I work for myself and my work schedule is very flexible.  However, as you might suspect, my cases can be very sad and stressful.  In 2012, I decided to learn to knit as a stress reduction strategy.  It has been a highly successful technique for me to use to manage my stressors.  I knit everyday and it has become almost a meditation practice for me.  As a result, I am a process knitter.  I am always knitting on something.  After almost seven years of daily practice, I have become adept at almost all aspects of knitting.  I have done some test knitting in the last three years and have discovered that I enjoy it very much.  And, while I am not a highly creative person, I am both  technical and precise with my knitting.  I can provide as much or as little written feedback as you desire.  And, I will produce a project that follows your pattern, as written, because I understand that that is the purpose of test knitting.  I am a somewhat mediocre photographer; however, Samsung has provided me with some photographic assistance.  Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy 10 is capable of taking a decent picture in spite of user 's inferior skills.  I prefer short projects to longer ones.  I like to knit hats, fingerless mittens, cowls, shawls, scarves, baby items and socks et al.   I have knitted a dozen sweaters to date, but I am, only now, becoming proficient at actually fitting them to my body type.  I would prefer to acquire more experience at sweater knitting before offering to test knit a sweater. Finally, I will do a gauge swatch for each project that I test knit.  And,  I will not take a project unless I can meet the deadline.
