Happy Birthday!! Party and Gifts All Around! Today ONLY

Cute Chocolate Cupcake with One CandleGuess what?! KNITFreedom is celebrating its first birthday today! Last September I quit my job, set up my home office, outlined Become a Knitting Superstar, set up my camera, and started filming - the rest is history!

I'm so grateful and happy that you've joined me in this journey towards Knitting Superstardom - whether you've been with me from the very beginning (thank you!!) or have just discovered KNITFreedom (welcome aboard!!) - it's because of you that KNITFreedom is thriving and helping more and more knitters feel totally confident and skillful, knitting things they never thought possible.

SOOO….. You're invited to the party!! I've got so many cool things planned for us on this special day. The party is going to be a world-wide media blitz, suggested by KNITFreedom Forum member Watercolorgirl. AND it goes along with a contest! AND a giveaway! AND a sale! AND goodie bags!

Okay: the media blitz goes like this - it works online and offline. Today, please post, blog, tweet, google+, link to, tell someone about… KNITFreedom. Post on Facebook with a link to the KNITFreedom Facebook page, tweet about @knitfreedom on Twitter, put up a link on your blog to, put a link up in a Ravelry forum to, tell a friend about KNITFreedom and help them sign up for the newsletter anything! Let's make a shout of joy for Knitting Superstardom ripple around the knitting world!

Now, my birthday gift to you: in response to the great feedback I've gotten on the full-video version of the Two-at-a-Time Mittens video e-book, I've gone back to my first video e-book and re-mastered it to create the full-video, non-streaming version of the Video Knitting Dictionary. Now you can truly have a video knitting dictionary on your computer to use whenever you want - no Internet connection needed!

To keep the gift-giving going, why not give a friend the gift of a KNITFreedom e-book today? Do you have a friend who wants to learn CABLES, MITTENS, or SOCKS? You can gift any of my e-books from my store on Ravelry - all you need is their email address. Shop my store and click "send as gift" in the corner to get started. Looks like...

One last thing - a beautiful and sweet gift that you can give to KNITFreedom that is free is linking any projects you have to my e-books on Ravelry and commenting on the e-books. Even if you don't have a great picture, anything helps! If you've started the mittens, made the cabled legwarmers, or made a pair of socks on Magic Loop, go to the store, click on the e-book, and click "Cast On" to link a new project to the e-book. That way, other Ravelers will know of your successes!
