Are you currently injured and unable to knit? Or is knitting getting you through some rough times? Life's better when you share your struggles. Today I share my journey to make my house a home with the help of amazing Feng Shui consultant Moni Castaneda.

Happy Fall!

No, this image isn’t from this year, as it’s too hot to wear hats still, but it came up on my phone and I wanted to share it with you.

Injured or Recovering?

I received a wonderful thank-you letter from a student yesterday who has been with us since the beginning of KnitFreedom. She, like many students I have heard from, suffered an accident over the summer that has prevented her from knitting!

My heart goes out to all those of you who have had falls, car accidents, arthritis flare-ups, or other issues that are preventing you from taking comfort in knitting as you recover. And I want to remind everyone who is currently able to use both hands that, even though we may be facing numerous other challenges, we can be grateful to be able to knit!

Knitting As Solace

Another wonderful long-time student wrote to me to let me know that knitting has been her rock as she deals with her son’s serious illness and all the stress and worry that goes along with something that we just cannot control.

Other students have told me they have moved, whether temporarily or permanently, and their knitting supplies are in storage or unavailable.

We all face so many different challenges in life that it’s hard to be aware of what other people are going through unless we share. Has knitting helped you stay sane while a loved one was in hospital or while you were facing some other challenge this summer? Or do you happen to be going stir-crazy because you can’t knit at the moment? Share what’s going on for you this summer in the comments!

Making My House a Home - Liat's Story

I wanted to share with you something that’s made a wonderful and lasting difference in my life this year. It’s too good not to share!

Moni Castaneda’s Feng Shui Immersion Journey has helped me (slowly and within my budget) transform our rented, open-plan apartment into a space that loves and nurtures me and my family.

Moni helped me by giving me daily one-on-one consultation over the course of two months to help me improve and plan how to improve each area of my home, one step at a time.

While I’m not quite done yet and so can’t post complete before-and-after photos for everything, I’ve been able to make huge changes in how our space feels and works to support our everyday lives.
The biggest problem Moni and I solved for my house was that when I looked around I felt poor and despondent. I didn’t see how we could afford to improve our house living on a tight budget.

Moni solved that problem for me with her Wealth Poster tool, an incredible way to focus on the material things you want to get in life, and start acquiring them even if you don’t increase your income.

She also helped me get unstuck at work with her Procrastination List tool. If you want to have more time for knitting and have your boring “to-dos” get done like magic, This is a MUCH easier way than you could imagine to move things forward without any effort.

She also has TONS of video classes and programs to help you improve every aspect of your home, including decluttering, marriage & relationships, outdoor spaces, and more. I’ve taken many of them and highly recommend them.

I also recommend joining her free Feng Shui For Us Facebook Group. I really enjoy being a part of it. You will learn so many cool tips about making your space better. And she has free videos, tips, and classes all the time.

I’m signed up for her upcoming free class on Four Home Design Trends That Look Great But Are Bad Feng Shui. I’m so curious as to what they are! Register here.

Family Photos

We’ve been up to a lot this month, as usual! Here are some of my favorite photos to document the days.
In other personal news, I’ve enjoyed reading Men Are Great by Karen Jones and conversing with her personally to improve my relationship with my great man, Carlos. It’s been fun to work on my homework, appreciating him and finding many opportunities to say “Thank you!”

In KnitFreedom news, I’ll be sending out some popular KnitFreedom tutorials and patterns in the next few days to help you find some of our best free tutorials.

It just remains to say, “Thank You!” to those of you who bought our new Moebius Bowl class while it was on sale and took the time to invest in your knitting success. You help keep KnitFreedom alive!
