Wanted: Sock Test Knitters

I'm almost finished with the Naga Socks, and am getting ready to put the pattern up here.
But this is the biggest pattern thing I've done, so before I go public with it, I need a couple of test knitting volunteers.

Sats:
I'm using fingering Peruvian wool from knit picks and US size 1 needles. (you can use whatever sock yarn and needle you want to get gauge, or change the gauge to fit your foot)
I'm getting about 9.5 sts and 13 rows per inch, to fit my women's size 9.5 foot.

The pattern includes this undulating scale pattern as well as cables up the leg.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The pattern is written toe up using magic loop.
It can also be done on two circulars or 5 DPNs with a little extra thought.
It has a short row heel.

If you are interested send me an e-mail at Alien_Sunset AT yahoo DOT com and I'll send you a PDF of the pattern.

If you finish the sock and give me feedback by the time I' m ready to publish the pattern (mid April probably) I'll give you test knitting credit on the final draft, along with your blog address.

{edit}
I have more than enough volunteers now.
Thank you to everybody who offered!

Before I looked at your beautiful sock, I was considering offering to be a tester, but I'm still learning about lace and things (I'm generally a straight knit or a rib girl), plus I don't do magic loop, so I didn't volunteer.

If nobody else steps forward in another week, though, drop me a line. I'll be slow, but since I am still learning, I'll definitely be giving your pattern a run for its money!

Your pattern is very interesting and looks like it would hug very nicely, too.
I love a challenge!
