Yarn Harlot had a homebirth! She mentions it in that post since her DD just had a birthday.

How cool is that?

Well poo to you Helen! j/k

I didn't know she was a doula either. That's cool. I knew I loved her for some reason...other than her knitting and sass.

Yup. She also uses her bike or public transportation as much as possible, and she is part of a CSA -- at least during the warm months -- for much of her food. I think she might be a vegetarian, as well -- but don't quote me on that!

I'm a YH lover, lol.

Yeah, she's vegetarian (except for a slice of turkey on Christmas, I believe). She's written that she's comfortable with her place at the top of the food chain, but she thinks that eating meat is hard on the planet.

I, apparently, am a YH groupie.
