Webinar Replay – 3 Tips All Knitting Superstars Need to Know, Plus Brand New Tips and Content This Week

Graphics from the webinar 3 Tips Every Knitting Superstar Needs to KnowIt all started innocently enough, as most good stories do.

I wanted to connect more with my readers and share some helpful new tips so I decided to do a webinar and start a podcast. To tell you the truth, I was a little nervous (in a good way!) to be sharing this new content in a brand new format.

And then, something unbelievable happened.

There were so many students attending the webinars and learning about Knitting Superstar (my flagship course) that it crashed knitfreedom.com -- multiple times!

Each webinar I've held has completely filled up, and I'm aflutter with the positive comments and emails we've gotten.

It quickly became clear that we needed to share this cool content out to ALL KnitFreedom readers.

So over the next week I'll be posting my favorite tips from the webinar here on the blog for you to enjoy.

I'll also be going more in-depth with detailed tips and techniques, plus downloadable resources you'll want to keep at your fingertips... plus, there will be a very special surprise just for you, so stay tuned!

For now I'll leave you with a question to consider:

If you and I were having a conversation a year from today, and you were looking back over the past year, what has to have happened in your knitting for you to feel happy with your progress?

Woman thinking of knitting patternsThis question is the key to a simple but important homework assignment for you: use your answer to the question above to picture what you would like to knit next.

Tomorrow I'll be back with a way of thinking that will help you choose the best project for you.

Together we'll make sure your next attempt doesn't end up at the bottom of your knitting bag!

  1. This was too basic for me. I need to learn how to read more complicated patterns.
    I get stuck in patterns, and have many UFO’s.

    1. Hi Mary,

      Thanks for your comment! That’s a great point. There are students of all levels who follow KnitFreedom and I wanted to make sure I didn’t start my first webinar with complex material that many students wouldn’t understand.

      I’m very interested in teaching more complex topics. Where do you get stuck in patterns? What kind of complicated patterns do you want to learn how to read? Charts? Lace? Seaming and finishing?

  2. Liat, I don’t have a question for you at this time, but just wanted to touch base to let you know that I enjoy your videos and other tips, and have referred everyone I know to your website. There are literally thousands of videos on YouTube about knitting, but I find that many of them may know how to do something, but not all of them are able to refer to their technique by the correct name. I am amazed at how many try to show you how to do a “great new way” to do something, which is totally the standard way of doing it, but they didn’t know what it was called, so they thought they had invented it. Yes, the information is free, but in many cases you get what you pay for. I always try to get every to check out more than one video when they are trying to learn from YouTube, because many of them are not only not very good, they are totally WRONG in what they are demonstrating. With your videos, what you say you are showing is actually what you are showing. I have never found one that was incorrectly labeled.

    One thing I might suggest–Combination knitting. I know it’s perhaps not for everyone, but for ribbing it’s absolutely the best. The technique works with both English and Continental knitting, and keeps your tension even much more easily than the “correct” method (meaning the one your grandmother or other relative taught you!). True, you have to recognize which is the leading leg of your stitch, and knit or purl it accordingly, but once that is learned you’re on your way to doing much faster ribbing, crisper, more even knitting of all types, etc.

    I also would like to see you mention the tip of opening your stitch as you insert your needle by pressing to the right, as this is the way you get the previous stitch tensioned correctly. Pushing against the right leg of either your knit or purl stitch causes the previous stitch to draw up to the bottom of the righthand needle, and you are much more likely to be able to knit evenly and with proper tension if you do that consistently across the row. I have had others compare my knitting to machine knitting, because I always do this no matter what technique I am using. It simply works, no muss, no fuss, it just works!

    Thanks for a wonderful series of how to videos. I use them myself occasionally (despite the fact that I have been a knitter for 65 years) and refer everyone I talk to about knitting to check them out.

      I would like to know more about using combination knitting…..especially in ribbing, since that is what Roy Laws mentions.

      I was interested in Roy’s advice to push each stitch to the right in order to tension the stitch beneath……. I think I mostly do that in knitting…….but purling? It’s a new idea to me……and since I’m self taught….until I started watching Liat’s videos…..I’m glad I read his post…….

  3. Hi Liat
    Thank you for such a great Webinar. I have been knitting for 66 years and do know quite a bit about knitting but…. have learnt something else which has confused me for years, how to untangle my circular needle cord…so simple … thank you again, keep up the good work and ….. loved your little K_N_I_T sayings :)
    Keep smilin

    1. Hi Carol,

      Thank you so much for your comment! I love that my little Magic Loop trick has helped you. It was hard for me to pick out just one or two tips to give, since it is sort of a big topic, and I am THRILLED that I chose the one that helped you!

      Thanks for posting here – it means a lot to hear from you!

  4. I have tried to buy the 54$ superstar book offered at the end of the webinar but it recycles back& will not let me order.help! I can’t wait to get it.Am I too late for the special?

    1. Hi Alma,

      Oh dear! I’m sorry about that. I’m so glad you want to take advantage of the offer – I will shoot you an email and we can get this cleared up. Please stand by!

      Thanks :)

  5. Liat, I have used your knitting videos since I started knitting a whopping two years ago and they, along with your wonderful supportive and encouraging attitude (!), have helped me learn so much. Because of you I have pushed my boundaries and learn something new with almost every project! I am very grateful for all you have to offer and am so glad I found you :). I wish you still lived in Aspen because I live in Ft. Collins and would love to sit down with you for a cup of coffee and just talk knitting – what a dream!

    1. Hi Jenny!

      I am so blessed to have students like you! I love that you are learning and growing with each project – I’m so proud of you!

      I do still visit Aspen sometimes because a big part of my family is there… next time I head that way (not a cheap proposition once one has moved away), I will do my best to ping you and maybe we can meet up!

      Big hugs,
      Liat

  6. I think Liat is trying to encourage more people to tackle knitting and extend their knowledge, and most of the techniques are available free on her site so you do not have to pay for a specific course if you don’t want to, but the Knitting Superstar Course does put all the information in one place. Many people, myself included, love her relaxed style and lovely clear videos. I count myself as quite an experienced knitter but have found such a lot of helpful hints and new techniques on the site.
    Thank you, Liat.

    1. Margaretta –

      You are absolutely right. I want everyone to feel like they can learn and grow in their knitting knowledge.

      I am so glad that I have been able to give you helpful hints and new techniques – even as an experienced knitter!

      Thank you so much for being a part of KnitFreedom. :)

  7. Hi there!
    Bought the program at full price, then saw the webinar with reduced price. Any chance of getting a refund on the difference?
    Many thanks

  8. I just watched a rerun of your webinar (since I was unavailable for an active playing) and just wanted to say that I enjoyed it so much. I have been knitting for about 2 years and have progressed to the middle of your tree – making socks from top down. My next goal is the toe up and eventually with the Magic Loop. Thanks so much for all your helpful tips and your excellent videos describing each technique and tips for becoming a better knitter. You do have a talent for teaching. Keep up the good work and soon we will have many more knitters enjoying the passion.

    1. Thank you so much for the sweet compliments. I am absolutely delighted that you had an opportunity to watch the webinar rerun.

      It sounds like you are making amazing progress with your knitting. Keep up the great work! Your options will just keep growing as you learn more techniques.

      Happy Knitting. :)

  9. Nov. 1, 2014: I have just watched your webinar and am interested in your Superstar video course. Is it still available for the 30% discount? I would love to work with it to improve my skills. Please advise…wonderful video…and thanks.
