Congratulations - what wonderful news about your baby!
I'm heading off to Fibre East too - not sure which day yet - it was fantastic last year and by all accounts is set to be bigger and better. Have fun :)

Congratulations on your great news! Re: turning work on Julissa: How about resting the jumper on a lazy susan or strong swift while you work on the sleeves?

Oh my, a playful giant - how wonderful! Congrats congrats congrats to you all. I love your podcast and will miss you while you are on 'maternity leave' :) - but take your time and don't worry about the 'cast until you are ready. We will be here with playful anticipation for when you return.

Have fun making all sorts of baby clothes!!! They are so much faster than adult (and certainly giant) clothes.

Congratulations - such exciting news!

Thank you for the link to The Night Circus game. I LOVE that book and the game is so much fun! I just had to tear myself away from it so I can go back to work.
