Hear What My Students Are Saying

Perfect tension every time!

Erika C.

You have done it again, Marie! Colorwork can be stressful worrying about having the right tension and this new method takes all of that away! I have always loved the look of all those traditional colorwork sweaters but they can take so much time and worried that in the end all that effort would be wasted because of my tension. Now my tension is perfect every time! Not to mention how much faster it seems to be and no fussing about trying to hold and knit with 2 yarns at the same time. I’m off to knit all the yoked colorwork sweaters now!

Game changer!

Julie M.

To use Marie's words, it is a “game changer”! It just takes about 1/2 hr to let it sink in and then TaaaDaaa!"
