December Wrap Up

made for me from my friend Debra
Today is December the 30th. Wow that is a crazy sentence to write. The end of the year is always bitter sweet to me. Sad to see it go but excited to see what the new year brings. I finished two big fingering weight shawls this year. I knitted and crocheted over 10,000 yards of yarn. I meet new friends through fiber arts and I have learned some things about myself. I have been very busy girl this year and have so much more planned in the future. This blog has grown since last year. I am even planning new things for the future. I am changing how I record the video-cast. I will be having segments and it will slowly become more of a regular podcast. I will be getting my from Debra to join in and hopefully get to film on location at my local yarn store. So without further ado on with the show:
