KnitFreedom Is My Preferred Source to Improve My Skills
Love Liat and KnitFreedom, and I can already see the value you are bringing to the learning. I can see how important it is for you to help us and do so in a way that is encouraging and supportive which helps to build confidence. KnitFreedom is my preferred source to improve my skills. Thanks!
I’m Taking Steps I Might Not Have Otherwise
Liat - you support me in so many ways and on so many levels I don’t even have words to express it all. One thing that floats right to the top is the confidence you instill. Confidence (lack thereof) is a major deterrent for me, especially when it comes to making mistakes. When I used to be able to run to my nearest LYS and get help, I was less concerned. But now I cannot do that. However, in line with your belief we can surmount any issues, I admit I’m taking steps I might not have otherwise.
For example, I’m working on a sweater and somehow got off my row count (even with a counter - it only works if one remembers to advance to the next row!). It’s Garter stitch and I’ve learned from you that every ridge is two rows when counting from the right side. So, I figured out where I was but needed to go back two rows as I missed an increase row. I started to unknit but it was too many stitches to do that efficiently. I took a deep breath and slipped out the needle to frog a couple of rows. And then I managed to pick up all the stitches!!! I was stunned.
Sending you a big hug and thanks for mentoring me.

Knowing How To Undo MistakesIn regards to: Fix Knitting Mistakes
Your soothing and encouraging voice was in my head last evening while I successfully knit a lace pattern that is new to me. Every time I made a mistake, I swear I heard you say, "That's alright, you can fix that." I feel much more confident as a knitter knowing how to undo mistakes. Thanks, Liat, for all that you do.

Toe-Up Socks – A MiracleIn regards to: Free Dictionary
I appreciate your videos and regular emails a lot. I just finished a pair of toe up socks with picot cuff; a miracle, thanks to you; a year ago I could not even read most knitting patterns.
I plan to order your superstar knitting program, but I have to tell you how helpful you have been when I am out and about knitting and come to a stitch or abbreviation I'm not sure of, to be able to access Knit Freedom online on my iPhone and hear your friendly voice and see your lovely hands explain what to do and how in a clear relaxed style.
When I did the picot trim on my toe up socks, on my first attempt, the work did not flop over into the sock as on your video; I watched it again and thought about it, then tried working the lace round the opposite direction, and it worked beautifully.
Your instructions have given me the confidence to work this out, try new things; I am now sock knitting confidently and ready to move on to previously unthought of challenges like two at a time on a circular, and the lace patterns I love.

All The Fine-Tuning I NeededIn regards to: Fix Knitting Mistakes
You have taught me all the fine tuning I needed to know to become a very proficient knitter.
I've made an amazing baby blanket that I did not have to tear out all the way even once b/c you taught me how to keep going then fix my mistake as I came to that spot... even many rows down. You taught me how to fix half-done stitches and recognize mistakes in intricate patterns.
So I just can't thank you enough! You've taken my anxiety over "frogging" and turned it into calm confidence!
