    Vicki- I love your blog and podcasts.My good friend is having a baby boy next March. I would love to knit her something special, but what do you knit for a little boy in the spring time. I know you have boys so you will understand the need to be all-boy! Thanks

    This is my favorite podcast. No big words like the last one sounding like…

    Big words hurt my head and make crafting hard.

    I’m a fan of Craft Lab now that HGTV airs the show in the morning when I can watch it.
    I found this podcast really imformative since I’m toying with the idea of selling my wares. I big “Thank you” goes out to both you and Jennifer for all the good advice!

    I listened today at work. It was very interesting to hear her talk about having to “pimp” herself. Where I work we actually have to write our own annual reviews, and then our team leaders comment on it and determine our pay increase based on the information we’ve provided (so long as the data we collect proves it). I look forward to using that ability when I start my own etsy shop!
