My Crochet To-Do List and a Plan

I'm getting serious about my Christmas crochet list. I already have quite a few things made but these are what I have left to do.
  • 2 pair men's extra large slippers
  • 2 hats for men
  • 5 pair women's slippers
  • 5 pair of men's slippers
  • 2 women's hats
  • 1 scarf for woman
  • 2.5 Christmas stockings
I hope this is all I have left to make for Christmas. I have big plans after I finish these projects--I will be attempting a graph afghan--if I don't chicken out. I have a tendency to fall back on many of the same patterns over and over again because I get secure with them. I am also a collector of yarn paraphernalia gadgets. I have butterfly looms, knifty knitter looms and a knook set and I've only used the knifty knitter to make a few hats. I really splurged and bought PC Stitch to make graphs and boy oh boy is it an unfriendly program to use. I am making a resolution here and now to be more adventurous with yarn projects and learn how to use the gadgets I have been hoarding.

I'm going to be seriously watching videos to help me master "graphghaning." Mikey of Crochet Crowd always does a great job with his video tutorials and I expect that these tutorials will be excellent resources to learning how to make a graph afghan. 

Okay, the plan is made and I'm excited about it. Just need to stay motivated and finish the Christmas projects quickly. 

Take care my friends!
