What others are saying

Confidence to tackle any pattern!

Rachael R.

As a newer knitter with a busy schedule, I wasn’t always able to take the in person classes offered by my LYS. The online classes offered by Marie Greene of Olive Knits were the answer to all my knitting needs! Her direct, logical approach to knitting techniques make thing simple and easy to learn. The skills I learned from Best Sweater Ever and Pick-up Artist have given me the confidence to tackle any knitting technique or pattern. I love that I can refer back to the lessons any time I need a refresher.

Skills I use all the time!

Nell B.

I've used something I learned in the Best Sweater Ever class in every sweater I have knit since! (And I thought I already knew how to knit a sweater.)

Best investment in myself!

Sue G.

I am a 65 year old who has been knitting since I was 7, but until I found Marie Greene, I didn’t know my own potential. I have learned so many new techniques and am knitting pieces I would never have imagined I could. One of the best investments in myself.
