"Love the Ebook! It’s thorough, informative, and easy to understand! You’ve really explained gauge well, especially for those who may have had troubles fully understanding it previously."

"The ebook is great: it really helped me see the importance of making gauge before every project. Making gauge was one of my list favorite things in crochet, and it makes it sound much more easier and put a lot of sense into it. I loved the thorough explanation about what factors affect your gauge and the practical part that follows the theory part."
