(Don’t Worry, But) a Transition for Liat

Hello Dear Reader!

You might have noticed that I didn’t send out a new video clip this last Wednesday. I did prepare it and it’s awesome – here it is: Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Favorite Invisible Increase.

YouTube video

The reason I didn’t send it out is because I’ve started an important transition in my life – one that won’t affect you very much as my KnitFreedom readers, but that will impact my new Wednesday video clips.

The news is that I’ve recently come back to the US and brought my two darling children with me. Yes, I’ve come alone with them and have come to live with my mom. After many years of debating, I’ve seen that this is the best decision to make in order to provide them a happy childhood and the three of us a happy life. I want you to know that I’m already feeling much happier and am in a very, very safe and supportive environment. Things are already better.

As the cost of *everything* including childcare and preschool is at least 10x what it was down in Mexico, my family has teamed up to support me and I’m investing all my abilities in supporting them in return. I’ll be joining forces with my mom, who is known around the San Francisco Bay Area as the “Baby Boomer Real Estate Lady” helping seniors in the Bay Area downsize, transition to senior living, and sell their homes to greatest advantage.

For KnitFreedom members, this won’t impact your KnitFreedom membership at all. I’ll still be answering all of your knitting questions by email and in our Knitting Superstars Facebook group, and I do intend to re-start at least quarterly Zoom Q&A calls as soon as Max gets settled in with his new nanny.

As for email subscribers, you’ll still receive about 2 years’ worth of twice-weekly emails with great knitting video tips helping you become a Knitting Superstar.

As much as I love looking for and finding video clips (and homing in on what kind of clips are most interesting to you), I won’t be able to continue doing that while I support my mom in making her business great. However, I may find myself looking for real-estate related video clips at some point in the future! So, sadly, just as it had barely begun, the video clips project will now come to an end.

However, I’m a learning machine that never stops, and I’m interested in a wide variety of topics. If you’d like to keep in touch with me and hear what I’m up to and maybe learn the best of what I’m interested in (singing, sewing, yoga, productivity, and language-learning are just some of my areas of interest and expertise), please leave a comment or reply to my email and let me know. I’ll add you to a special list of Liat super-fans and send you informal, personal updates every so often (of course with the inevitable family photos).

In addition, if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area and/or want to be in touch with the Baby Boomer Real Estate team, reply or comment and let me know. I can add you to our list so you can get information about downsizing, transitioning into senior accommodations, reverse mortgages and capital gains tax. We’re also available to give you recommendations for any kinds of professional services in the Bay Area like carpenters, floorers, roofers, plumbers, heating professionals, lawyers, fiduciaries, tax planners, home organizers, move managers, and senior housing.

Lastly, if you’d like to know more about my personal situation, especially if you’ve been struggling in a relationship you fear might not be good for you or your kids, or you know a woman about whom you’re worried with regards to her relationship, please feel free to reach out. The honesty and strength of other women is what got me here, and I wish I’d had access to more information sooner. I’d be happy to share what I’ve been through and what’s helping me.

Much love,



  • It’s so wonderful you have a supportive family. Blessings to you and your little ones in your life changing decision. I’m sure your Mom is excited about having you by her side, hope all goes well as you get settled into a normal routine. Looking forward to hearing about your new adventures as life goes on.

  • Renna Hanlon

    Liat, I am only just now reading this post. I got so behind with things the last couple of months, that I basically quit reading any e-mails.

    Let me first say, my heart hurts for you and your boys, navigating such a change in your lives, and the ordeal you endured that must have led up to it.

    Your mom sounds like such a real champion to have in your court. No doubt, she’s greatly gratified to have her grand babies so near (and you!).

    I’ll be adding your sweet little family to my prayers. I believe God put us each here for a purpose, and with your grit and determination, I’m sure you’ll find exactly what that is to fulfill it, all the while honing your many God-given talents along the way.

    I definitely do wish to continue keeping up with you, and your life with those sweet munchkins. You hold a soft spot in my heart for helping me make that leap from a struggling newbie knitter to one with confidence.

    God bless you!

  • Jennie Sims

    Good Morning Liat, I hope the sun is shining in your world this morning! I have followed you for so many years and would love to continue. I learned to knit at my local yarn store years ago, but was such a slow knitter with so many questions. I was so fortunate to find you and your website, Knitfreedom. I felt like I had a personal knitting mentor and friend in you! I learned through your videos how to knit continental and my speed and enjoyment in knitting increased tremendously. I learned from you how to do magic loop, how to knit two at a time toe down socks and so much more! I think the greatest gift you gave me was learning how to correct mistakes in my knitting! You are an amazing woman and I wish you all the best on this new road in your life with Max and Milo. I am so glad you have your Mom there to help you! And what a gift you have given her to be close to those two little boys!! I moved two years ago after my husband died so I could be closer to my daughter when she was pregnant. What a joy it has been for me to be close to my grandson Foster, and now we have another little boy who was born in December, Miles. Wishing all the best to you and your beautiful boys!

      Hi Jennie,

      Wow, thank you so much for this incredible comment. Your words truly warm my heart. I am so happy to know that you found me years ago and have learned all the knitting tricks I love so much. I am in awe. I appreciate you writing to me after all this time.

      And thank you for your words of support for my family and my decisions. I don’t know what I was thinking in the first place, having babies far away from my mom. I feel like if there’s anything they should teach you in “Health Class,” it should be this! Don’t have babies far away from your parents!! For your own sanity and everyone’s happiness.

      Hugs hugs hugs.

  • Thank you Liat for sharing your life with all of us. You are very brave and my prayers will be for your continued recovery and safety. Love your knitting lessons and I certainly hope to continue using them as time passes when I have more time to knit. Keep me also on the emails list. Thank you.

      Hi Rose,
      Thank YOU for your kind and supportive comment. Big hugs,

  • You are a brave and strong woman. So glad you have moved on with your boys. I am 80 and live in Ontario Canada. Have been knitting and crocheting from the age of 7. Thanks to you I am still learning. Keep me on your list please. Stay strong and move forward.

    Best of luck to you and your family.

      Wonderful to hear from you! Thank you for your support and kindness. I am in awe of your status as a lifelong yarn artist. Thank goodness for knitting and crocheting!

      Big hugs,

        Hi Gayla,

        Thank you so much. I feel so supported by the community here. Many have gone through what I’ve been through or worse, and I feel so guided by the brave souls who have made this journey before me.

        Grateful for you,

  • I just want to add:

    ‘Don’t look back … you’re not going that way!’

  • I’ve just come across this email, and I’d like to wish you and your family all the very best.
    Please keep me on your email list for updates. I’ve followed you for a long time and thanks to you I mastered toe up socks!

  • TerpRaven


    I wanted to wish you and your family Happy Holidays! Hugs to you all in this transition back to the US. I know you have a strong support system! I was curious as to what language you are working on? I want to reignite my interest in ASL.

  • So very happy for you to be with family, safe, and in the US. I have followed your postings for a very long time, benefited from your expertise, and enjoyed your family development. Please keep me on your list for although I have been knitting for 82 years (started when I was seven), your videos, encouraging voice, and useful tips are a treasure for me.

    Happy holidays!

  • Barbara LeBlanc

    Dear Liat,
    Happy Belated Chanukah to you, Milo, Max, Safta and the rest of your family. I’m a lifetime member and have been with you forever. Having lived through 2 divorces and coming out rather sane, although I don’t know the specifics of your cause for returning here, I have faith that you have done what is best for yourself and your children. I view you as a very strong woman who runs her own business, raises her children, and will come through these days living your best life. I will be 80 years old in 3 months, G-d willing and the creek don’t rise, and I know how hard life can be especially in these troubling times with anti-semitism on the rise, a higher cost of living, the devastating Israel/Palestine war, Russia/Ukraine war, and a topsy turvy political circus here in the good ole USA. I pray every day that sanity will prevail and our children (Milo & Max), grandchildren, and in my case, great grandchildren will have a planet earth to live on. Knitting and crocheting have kept me out of the mental hospital and you have been a much needed mentor to those crafts. Please keep me on your VIP list and know that I’m rooting for you whatever you decide is best for your family in the future.
    Love always, Barbara

  • Dear Liat,
    You are a brave, strong woman. The fact that you removed yourself and your children from an insecure situation and went to those who love you and support you says you’ve already made a good decision.
    Our eldest daughter was in a terrible abusive marriage. She lived in the U.S., we live here in Israel. We had no idea how bad it was. When she came home, with a 3 year old daughter and a 6 month old daughter she was so broken and dysfunctional from her very real trauma that it was heartbreaking. Many , many years later I can say that she recovered but by no means entirely I won’t go into details but I feel compelled to give you some advice. Never let you husband have your kids’ passports, or let him take them to Mexico. You shouldn’t take them there at all. If he wants to see them make sure it’s in your control.
    I have no doubt you will come out of all this, strong and brave. Let your mother give you as much support as she can, believe me she wants to.
    I have knitted dozens of socks with your help. I think you are great, and definitely want updates on how you, Milo and Max are doing. Give your Ima a hug from me, penny

  • Sharon Calvert

    You’re a treasure, Liat. 😽 My late husband loved to say “Progress is a vector! It has speed and direction.” So keep your face forward, and your feet moving, and you’ll come back out on top. This time, with two beautiful boys. 😸😻❤️

  • Nancy KIrby

    I admire your strength, tenacity & journey as you venture into a new frontier. You are the reason I picked up knitting again. Your gift of sharing so freely not only knitting tips but of your life, drew me so deeply. I wish you and the boys strong days ahead & know so many of us are supporting you in spirit.

    Please keep me on your email list. I do have a problem logging into Knit Freedom, that can wait til the new year.

  • Susannah H.

    Dear Liat,

    I can’t add anything to what your other fans have already said, but I do want you to know that I, too, admire your courage and determination in making this huge transition. I wish you and your mom all the best as you meet these challenges together and create a warm and loving environment for your boys. I’ve been a fan for many years now, and yes, I would like very much to keep in touch with your news and photos. Blessings!

  • Wishing you the very best in this new phase of your life. Please put me on your keep in touch email list.

  • Liat, I already wrote to tell you how happy I am that you are now safe and in a wonderful new life, but would like to add extra wishes for peace and happiness at this special time of year. I would love to be added to your list; you are an important part of my life!

  • I would love to keep hearing from you! I don’t know all that’s going on with you but you have your children and your mother and sound happy…that’s what’s important!

  • Welcome home dear Liat❣️ I pray Gods blessings over you, your children and your mother. I pray you find peace that surpasses all understanding. I often remind myself not to stumble over something behind me but to think on good things and maintain an attitude of gratitude. All it takes is to look in those sweet little faces that adore you❣️
    Please add me to your list of thankful subscribers.

  • The hardest part is over. It is all uphill from here. Your bravery and strength is a great role model for your boys. How wonderful for them to enjoy a three generation team. I would feel honored to her from you. I’d like to stay in the know with you and your mom. It sounds like you are on a new and fulfilling adventure. Many blessings to all four of you.

  • Debbie Davenport

    Blessings to you and your family Liat. I’m holding you in prayer for peace and strength. It’s not an easy decision to make, and the tipping point happens in an instant. I’ve been there too, but it does get better. You grow and the kids grow, and then you find an amazing support community like KnitFreedom!
    God Bless you <3

  • Judy Hamilton

    Good move! Welcome back.

    Please keep me on the list.

  • Welcome back to the US. I’m so glad you have a safe and supportive environment for you and your babies. I truly wish you all the best in your new journey. Please keep sending the updates about you and your beautiful family.

  • Kate Fischer

    I like hearing about your adventures, no matter what they are. Thanks for sharing and please keep me on your “special list.”

  • Chess Kark

    Liat, I was thrilled to read that you made the decision to move back to US for the good of your children and yourself. Be strong, believe in happy future and cherish the support and partnership with your Mother. Way to go Girl! I am your super-fan so please keep me on your special list.

    • Chris Austin

      Liat, I went down your road this past June. I am so proud of you for taking care of yourself and your beautiful boys. You will find support from places you never knew and people you never met. I have you will be in my prayers and my heart please keep in touch. Keep your sense of humor with you at all times it will lift you up. Please, add me to your list.

  • Patti_is_knittinginflashes

    I hope that you and your family can find peace and joy in your new home. As a grandmother myself I envy your lovely mom.

    Please add me to your Superstars email list. I’ve been a follower for several years and you have been a blessing to me with your knitting tutorials. (And I signed up for the phone photography course you suggested, too!)

    I’m in the eastern US but if there is anything that you need, I’m sure all of your readers will be happy to help out in any way.

    And remember that you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

  • Welcome back to the good ol’ USA, Liat! I wish you and Milo & Max all the best for this holiday season and for the coming new year. I look forward to hearing about your family’s adventures as you navigate this “new world” together, so please keep my name on your mailing list!
    Your mom looks familiar; perhaps I’ve seen her photo in local real estate ads? I wouldn’t mind being on her info list. As a woman of a certain age, I may need to think about making housing adjustments in the future. (I don’t mean fulfilling my fantasies about an ADU just for my crafts & knitting.)
    Anyway … I’m just south of The City, and as one of your other fans wrote, I’m just an email away.
    And thank goodness, your tremendously helpful videos are always just seconds away; so, instead of thrashing about & railing against difficult-to-understand knitting patterns, I can simply log in to KF and get calming help. Recently, I began to knit myself a sweater designed by Jody Long. Two paragraphs in, I was frustrated by the instructions and decided to just start over. After carefully reading & re-reading the pattern yet again, I cable cast-on 260+ stitches. Repeat frustration; repeat starting over. Three times! I finally figured out what the instructions actually meant and finished the set-up rows; but I dreaded the next step, because the pattern was only charted. You had just sent us lessons on using charts and an email encouraging us to not avoid patterns because of charts, but I balked: “I do best when everything’s written out.” Well, I had to make the difficult decision to change that attitude, so I did. Using a wonderful magnetic pattern holder, yellow & pink highlighters, and a heap of patience laced with hope, I overcame my dread of using two different charts PER ROW–remembering to start with chart B on WS rows as instructed–and found myself knitting every stitch calmly with your encouraging counsel, “You are a knitting superstar! There is nothing to be afraid of here!” And despite 3-, 4- and 5-stitch cables sprinkled all over the sweater (i.e., not a plain, straightforward stockinette stitch pattern), using the charts has become almost mechanical–like turning to the next page of the book–and I’ve gotten to the armholes, assured I can finish this by Christmas. (Liat does it again! She saved my bacon AND what little sanity I had left. I not only learned the cable cast-on but also conquered my longstanding aversion to charts, thanks to KF tutorials! The lessons worked for knitting; great lessons for life, too!
    Thank you for that Liat! I know that the principles & discipline you’ve learned & taught us to apply to knitting will bolster your enthusiasm & courage to explore & work out what comes next for you and your two little ones. Best wishes for a starry-bright future–you deserve all the best!
    Hugs to you & yours… and btw, what a splendid gift to your mom: you AND the grandkids home for Christmas! Bravo!

  • Peggy C.

    Dear Liat – I am praying for you and your precious boys. I would definitely like to keep up with you – keep me on your list. I am a member of your website and years ago I did my first socks for people that have a high arch and they fit better than the socks I had done before. I haven’t been doing much lately because have had too much going on but am trying to get back to a lot of my unfinished projects. I am so glad that you and your children are in a safe place now and you are with your mom and able to help her. I wish you the very best and will continue to pray that everything will go well for you, your children, and your mom.

  • Linda McLaughlin

    Liat, I wanted to say all the things these others have already said in a better way than I probably may have done. My heart goes out to you. After nearly 6 years of struggle God has recently restored my own marriage of 55 years. We both had to choose to obey Him at all costs. In some relationships that cannot and does not happen. So while it’s sad that you and your children have had to experience this, I know that God is with you and can be trusted to provide for every one of your needs and give you His best in all areas. I pray that one day you will be able to look back on all this and say He did! You are such a gift to so many! Thanks for all you’ve done, are doing, and will be doing…but most of all, thanks for being you and for being so open and vulnerable. I’d like to be on that special list you mentioned. <3

  • Sharon Smith

    Dear Liat,
    I am sorry for all you are going through. I have been that route myself & can warn you that you will have your ups & downs & even wonder about your decision. Write down how you are feeling now & why. Ever so often you may need to read this note. I’ve also been there as a child of a split family. Please be as honest with your children as you can at their young age. My mom kept telling me how much my father loved me & wanted me in his life – which wasn’t true.

    I am 76 now. Ten years ago I went through choosing a retirement community, downsizing, selling our home (on 2 acres with a barn), & moving. What sold our house were: the great advice on getting rid of the clutter, organizing all the closets &, most of all, the fabulous pictures of the house & barn that the real estate agent put online. You take beautiful photos & you know your way around the internet! You & your mother will be an awesome duo. You already are a superstar in so many endeavors!

    God bless you & yours & keep you all in His care.

  • Cindy Asche

    Hi Liat!

    So very thankful that you and your children are in a safe and nurturing environment now! I’m so sorry that you’ve had to go through these trials, but commend you for your bravery, and taking action to put yourself and your kids in a better situation. Don’t know your circumstances, and don’t have to, but will be keeping you and your family in my prayers.

    Thank you for all your great knitting videos! I have just ordered yarn and plan to start a beginning project with you. Here’s to hopes for many years of knitting together!

    Thank you again and merry Christmas to you and your precious family!

  • Liat: I’m so glad you’re home! May God continue to bless you and your family. I know this was a courageous decision to make. Just keep knitting and praying. Hugs to all.

  • Hello Liat. I’m most happy for you and yours to be in a better situation. I have been one of your knitting Superstars for several years. I learned to knit… mostly from you and your wonderful videos… after I had a near fatal heart attack. knitting is a calming and relaxing time for me. Thank you… prayers and blessings for you and yours.

  • Avid Reader

    You had the courage to make a difficult choice that will ensure the safety and happiness of you and your little family. I’m so proud of you. I’ve always found your posts useful and love the little glimpses into your life.

    Best wishes for a happy future!

  • Welcome home and all the best to you in this important transition. I’ve enjoyed and learned a lot about knitting from you, so thank you. Please keep in touch 😉

  • Good morning beautiful!
    You continue to inspire me. You may remember that I met at Blazing needles in SLC way back when and have continued to be amazed by the woman you are. Your strength and wisdom are but two of your greatest gifts. I wish you well in your new journey.

    There is something I always tell my grown kids when they are struggling with grownup decisions…”think back to the person you were 10 years ago. Are you that same person today? Know now, that you will will not be the person you are today in another 10 years”

    I am guessing you are somewhere in your 40’s now. Think what the past decade has brought you and know that the next one will be just as surprising!

    I had my 72nd birthday this week. 10 years ago I did not know that my husband and I would leave SLC and build a Passive Eco Friendly, Sustainable home in the middle of Wyoming on the wind river.
    Courage young friend, you’ve got this! Diana

  • Ruth Drelling

    Good for you. I send my best wishes and prayers to you and yours. Good luck. Keep me on your keep in touch list.

  • RJ Herrmann

    I have been knitting since I was 7, my mom dropped me off at a yarn shop to learn. I am now 70, and you’ve taught me some new tricks! Bravo to your courage and supporting your mom in her work, and for supplying her with not one, but TWO grandkids. I am still waiting for mine.

  • Debi Humphrey

    Liat, I’ve been following you for years, and the videos I most enjoy and use are YOUR videos. I think you’re smart to trim out some time-eating tasks at this transitional time in your life. One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned is when to let go. Looks like you’ve learned it, too. I wish you all the best in your new life and career. I know you’ll excel at whatever you put your mind to, whether it’s knitting, real estate, or other as-yet-unknown endeavors. Transitions like this are challenging, but with your positive, can-do attitude, there is no limit to where you can go. I foresee an amazing future for you!

  • I’m so happy you have great family support here – what a hard decision. I do love reading your posts and am excited to learn about whatever you want to share with us, including seeing pics of your cute family. Merry Christmas and best wishes for a fantastic 2024!

  • sorry to hear about the upheaval in your lives – been there – wishing that the lights of the season brighten your lives

    Oh Liat, you have such a warm and giving heart. Your boys are so fortunate to have you as their mom. With time and support from your family and friends you will shine like the true Liat should. Sending loving and supportive hugs your way!❤️

  • My Dear Sister Liat, what wonderful news! You are an inspiration, your courage and willingness to take those steps for your family are amazing, Sis. We are all in your camp, lifting you up, holding you and the boys in the light, praying blessings of healing and strength over you, Liat. Please let us know what more we can do to support you through this moment. You have blessed all of us immeasurably and now it is your turn to receive (for the balance of all of us). So receive the blessing, Sister, and please just ask. We love you!

  • Margie Jarrett

    Congratulations on getting out of a relationship that was unhealthy for both you and your children. It is a hard decision to uproot everything familiar and start a new life. Good luck and blessings for you, your boys, and your Mom as well. I am sure she is happy and relieved you are back with her.

  • Lynn Johnson

    List— Thank Goodness you are truly home and free. The community you’ve created is here! I have been with you virtually for 9 years?? A long time.
    As scary and difficult your life may have been, know you are among all who care, support and adore you! You saved yourself and your most precious children who deserve peace and safety. You are a WARRIOR! You’ve Got Your Life Here and Now! I See You💜

  • Sending many blessings for you and your family. Love your strength and determination. May you always be happy!

  • Liat, I am so very proud of you, truly our fearless leader. I always felt your teachings for fearless knitting freedom also applied to life and resonated with me. I am so happy you are safe and pursuing new dreams. I am happy to follow along in your new endeavors, wherever they may lead you and your family!

  • Chris Crockett

    Congratulations on your transition to a safe life. Good luck with your new adventure, and please consider me super fan!

  • I honor you for your brave and courageous decision to choose a safe, loving and healthy life for yourself and your children. You are worthy of it!

    I look forward to your emails and appreciate all your wonderful insights and instruction.

    Your knitting videos helped me to not only improve my knitting skills and enjoyment, but helped me through a tough time of adjustment in my life about 6 years ago.

    May love flow to you always…

  • I’m glad you are safe and your children are safe. No one deserves to be abused. You are a strong women so I know you will be ok. Good luck

  • Jackie R.

    What a courageous decision you made. May you find peace, comfort, joy, and new life for you and your precious children. And yay, Grandma!

  • Please take care. What a difficult transition. thank goodness for the support of your family. Would love updates on you and yours…

  • It was the best decision you can make for you and your beautiful sons. From experience I know
    that if you stay in an abusive relationship your babies have a high rate of turning out like the
    abuser and would end up treating you like the one that was hurting you. No one should ever
    let another person control them and cause them pain. You and your babies will be added in my
    Yes, please let keep up with you on your new and happy adventures.

  • Barbara H.

    You are a brave and strong woman, Liat. I am thankful you can join your mother’s business and have family support. Years ago, I had to leave my husband with my 1 1/2 year old son to move home with my parents who made the difference in my son growing up normal. These decisions are hard but takes faith in oneself to make them. I would love to continue reading about your life.

  • I would love to keep up with you. I will be keeping you and your sweet babies in my prayers.

  • Karen B.

    Liat, I am happy in my heart that you and those precious babies are with your mom. Life can only be better now.
    Love ‘n hugs to you all.

    I know from experience what it’s like to grow up in an abusive household. I don’t know your story but I think I can read between the lines. YOU did the right thing. So glad you were strong enough and have the support you need to give your children a better life. Please keep me on your special list. ❤️

  • Liat, I am proud of you for making the change. There was something about your photos that made me wonder. I am glad you are in a better place, with a good support system. Our knitting community will help each other with links and references, I am sure.

  • You made a brave choice. I hope your future is brighter.

  • Courageous decision. As we birth and raise children they above all else must be the focus. Thank you for choosing love for them and for yourself to make a new life.

  • Liat,
    Wishing you strength as you start a new life with your supportive extended family.

  • You are a courageous, strong woman! I was raised by a woman who also did what had to be done and emigrated with 3 young children because that’s was what was needed to ensure a healthy, happy life for us. Your children are your priority and they will benefit greatly from the courage you have shown. Peace and happiness to you!!!!

  • You have made a very difficult decision but when you know in your head and your heart it is the best one for you and your children you are able to move forward with positive conviction. Family support is such a blessing. My prayers and thoughts are with you as you move forward.

  • Liat, I am so glad that you moved closer to where you would have support and help for you and your precious children. I went through that myself in 1990 but could not move closer to my family. I did have support from people at the church I attended. They were a life saver. I happy to read that you are helping your mom out in her endeavors. It sounds like it would be fun. Please add me to your list of super fans. I will be praying for you and your family.

  • Good morning, Liat
    Welcome back! I’m so glad you have a wonderful support family in your life, and you have a beautiful, beautiful family. I have never left a message for anyone or anything but I just felt I had to leave you one. You have helped my knitting so much as I am a self taught knitter.
    yes please keep me on the list. BTW my husband is from San Francisco and has a lot of family there! Hold your head high and hang in there! Theresa

    Welcome home, Liat! Stay strong. You have a lovely family and their happiness and safety are your top priorities. I know that your knitting will be a place to go to for relaxation and to “decompress” when the going gets rough. Take care, and cherish your time with your little ones. The nicest thing about knitting is knowing that it will still be there tomorrow!

    Baruch haba b’shem, Adonai.

    Much love….

  • May God bless you and your family on your new journey.

  • Please keep me updated. You and your children are greatly loved. Been thru this myself and know how challenging it can be. One day at a time dear lady. Happy to hear you have your family there to support you. You are in my prayers.

  • I am sorry to hear that you are having to make a transition. But I am thankful that you realized that it was best for your and your children’s happiness and wellbeing. You are a strong, courageous, and independent woman. I am thankful that you have a supportive family that can help you during your transition.
