This Christmas I did not make the first crochet gift. I had great intentions – but just started way too late. With work and other stuff, I just have not had the time to crochet – which makes me very sad. Usually when Christmas is over, I am so mentally exhausted that I cannot even think about the next Christmas for many months. This year, however, I don’t feel so wiped and planned to get cracking on 2012 goals.

Next Christmas I plan to give a lot more crochet gifts. Several people did receive handmade gifts and loved them. My biggest problem is deciding on what to make. I do plan on making some scarves and hats – with possibly some amigurumis. That is so vague but really is the only plan I have right now. I just plan to crochet and finish projects – then decide later on giving.

I have so many patterns I want to try and plan to in 2012. My goal is to crochet more and so some original patterns as well. If I can stay organized and focus, then 2012 is going to be a great year.
