Also, from this podcast, you might think that Jaala still lives in her parents' basement. This is not true. She lives next door with a very understanding husband, two kids who love Mini-Mochimochi, and many pets. So it's just quieter over at her mom's house, which is why Jaala and Amy sneak over there to talk knitting. Really, it's a lot quieter over there.
