Dreads, slippers, and wow

It's a week late but my dreads have finally reached the three month mark. Decided to take the yarn dread sleeves off and let my locks do their own thing for maybe a month or so, and just take it from there. Been pretty busy as of late, I've gotten a lot going on the needles. Finished the snowmen and glad to be on a new project. My contest for my facebook page was a success went from 10 followers to 36 in about three weeks so very pleased. Hoping to continue to gain more followers as well as some posible clients. Within the next week I have plans of casting on a black and red Owl cacoon and hat for one of my lucky winners. Started on a pair of practice slippers. Which was a little bit tricky finding a simple pattern for a first pair. My Grandmother has requested green and Yellow slippers for Packer Fans. So luckily my husband being the size 10 mens foot was my Ginea Pig.  The pattern I found was Originally  for a womens size nine so I went through and after seeing the shapings went ahead wrote my own pattern. I made it a little bigger so that thick socks can be worn as well as for a little stretch could be acceived for varrying foot size. After lots of thought and screaming ripping back of stittch I decided  to crochet so the inner wrong side wouldn't have the strings where little toes could snag and pull. Saw a few videos and patterns for carrying along while you knit but just seemed to time consuming. Hoping tomorrow to go ahead and start with the real thing green and gold! With in the last few days  a friend of ours has returned to the states and in an attempt me and the husband have been playing wow. The original play was to reach 85 and to be geared on our druids. Well hasn't worked out as well as planned but it's still a go. We're just hit 72 yesterday, My druid is primaraly spec as a feral cat. Now those of you that play my now tnks and healers a far and few aso I respec my secondary balance to feral bear to tank. With hubby healing  and me tanking there's no worries for a tank not keeping aggro and having to kitty tank. In all truth I had planned on tanking later on but wanted to try the feral dps. I much rather have a melee charachter, Rather be up front and in control and set the pace. Once our druids have reached cap it'll be back to our pally duo tank/healer, or might try with the death night/ priest.
