Year in Review
In this section we review our crafting in 2014. Kimberly had a good crafting year. She used most of the yarn that she bought and sold yarn that she wasn't in love with anymore. She's also proud of herself for sewing more this year. While neither of us loves sewing, we are starting to like it more and Kimberly hopes that she will one day sew an elaborate Halloween costume. One of the reasons we started the podcast was to help up focus more on knitting this year and it's worked pretty well. Kimberly thinks that 2014 was a good year for knitting and crafting.

Thuy thinks she did pretty well this year in knitting and crafting. Some of the bulky yarns may be repurposed as accessories or might be sold as the SoCal weather isn't practical for bulky wool yarns.

We are both really glad that we started the podcast and are having a lot of fun being a part of the knitting community in a new way and are grateful for all of our listeners.
