My cat and I woke up and watched your podcast today! We love you two! (Well I do, not so sure on the feelings of Kitty...)
Thanks for doing what you do!

Ok, I live in Germany and tried to buy a pattern from knitpics and think I know why you can't buy from anywhere else but the States. You need to create an account and you need a shipping addy that is in the US or Canada. Without this I wasn't able to create an account so I wasn't able to buy a PDF. I'm actually bummed, I found a cute crown pattern that I was willing to buy. I'll just wait until the summer when I head to the Cape to my parents place. Anyway, great show, luv you guys!!!
