I, too, would love to test your yarn. I don't have a blog, but could post on Ravelry about it, as well as Twitter... And of course would share with my knitting meetup groups. (Several of those ladies do have blogs.)

If I win, you can contact me through Ravelry: my user name is marjimarks.

I just learned to knit a little over a year ago, with the intention of wanting to knit socks. After 2 classes, I was not getting it and disappointed. I sat down one Saturday with 3 videos and 2 books and by the end of the weekend, I was past the heel! I was so excited. Since then, I've been totally addicted to socks and especially handpainted yarns! Please choose me!

I always take my new goodies to Stitch Night and they just Ohhh and Ahh about them. It would be a thrill to be a test knitter of your newest.

The yarn sounds wonderful! I'm looking forward to knitting socks (or maybe mitts) with it. Your colors are always so lovely, too. I've been a fan from the very first sweater I knit 10 years ago, and my first pair of socks were knit with the leftover yarn.
