    These are so awesome!

    We’ve just started an intro to colorwork class at my shop using your anthology recipe. Love it!

    You are motivating me: I inherited a knitting machine from my aunt that had never been used, and i have still not taken it out of the box…i have an instructor that will teach me how to use it so I’m scheduling time this winter…the ability to make sweaters more quickly?! Yes please!

    You are just the best – and received your book – of course, its excellent. You get a person so interested, they do a better job of knitting, as they want their knitting to be just as good as yours. Thank you for the inspiration you draw from an individual.
