I’ve been slacking quite a bit on my Year of Projects as I’ve immersed myself in other crochet projects. However, I want to get back on track. I’d set out to make twenty five different crochet bags and although Year of Projects runs through the middle of next year, I wanted to get mine done by the end of 2011. If I’m going to do that, I’ve gotta get on track.

So, I’m here to review what I’ve done so far and what I’ve got left.

These are the patterns I planned on making although I left it open as to the fact that I may modify any or all of the designs.

Year of Projects Plan Moving Forward

So it turns out that I’ve only managed to complete five of the twenty five crochet bag designs on my list and we’ve had more than ten weeks to work on our projects so I’m not thrilled with that progress. I have another big project I want to start at the beginning of the new year so I need to get on task. Today I’ll be printing out the patterns for the remaining twenty crochet bag designs and getting stitching. Expect to see a lot more from me soon!
