As you might imagine, I spend a lot of time talking to knitters. Across the board, we all struggle. Whether it's a knowing how to unknit properly, how to pick up stitches, or how to choose what size to knit, there are things we either haven't tried yet, or have tired and not quite gotten it.
Either way, there are pain points in knitting. Usually it's just a matter of the thing being new and unfamiliar. Because everything is hard when it's new.
I feel like it's my job to help with all this. I write these blog posts and do the live podcasts, and make silly Instagram reels to help you past your pain points. But sometimes I'm a little blind. I've been writing and teaching for so long, I can get blind to what you need right now. I think, "Oh, I covered that in a blog post before." so I don't address it. But then I go back and see that it was 2015 when I wrote that post.
So, tell me -- what are your pain points? what would you like to read about in the blog or see covered in a podcast? Do you enjoy posts of beautiful sweater patterns I've found? Do you like silly Instagram reels with helpful knitting tips?
What pain point can I help you past? You can tell me in the comments, or you can click the boxes in this Google form. I want to create the kinds of things that are actually helpful for you.
