Random Happenings

Whew. I know I haven't posted in a while but this has been a really busy week for me. We had all kinds of family here yesterday and it was crazy trying to clean up and get ready for that. I have been packing and throwing stuff away like mad getting ready for this move. Saturday we are having a big yard sale and I'm a little nervous about getting ready for it because it's going to be really hard to part with some of this stuff but.. out with the old in with the new.

In other news I am still struggling to reach lvl 66 on my gnome but I just hit 28 on my troll! PVP time! Time to run WSG like it's going out of style. I want the honor so I can get the really nice axes for her when she hits 60. I know there is better in outlands quests but not until you get to Terokkar and not until you have done some lead up quests so :P

I'm going to post some screen shots that I took a while ago now because they are fun and I need some pictures up here.
This is my gnome Redden in Gadgetzen after using the transporter and drinking some noggenfogger. Notice I'm not a very high level yet in this picture. It was taken quite some time ago but I still have the chicken. Awesome little chicken that looks just like the gnoish engineering battle chicken. :)
I just did another search of my pictures and I don't see another one worth posting right now but I will look for one to post in the next blog entry.
Moving on...
My knitting has sort of been put off recently with all of this packing and cleaning getting ready for our big move I haven't really had time. I'm going to make some time soon though becauase I need to for my peace of mind. I'm going to go now so that I can finish up some packing but I'll post again soon!

Story building

I'm trying to come up with some story lines for the characters on my Role Playing relm but I have sort of hit a writers block. It can be hard to concentrate on more than one thing at a time and not everyone on that server role plays which makes it even more confusing.

*sigh* Oh well I guess it will come to me some time.

In other news I have recently completed a hat (pictures to come) and have just cast on my first horde knitting project. I can't get my camera to connect properly right now but I will get pictures up as soon as I can.

I think the horde knit will be fun. I decided to try making a sweater but it may end up as a tank top since it is getting in to the summer months and the yarn I'm using is really light weight left over from some other project. I hope I have enough but if I don't have enough for a shirt I can always make it a dishcloth! lol! I have so many wips now it is crazy but I can't seem to stay focused on one project long enough to finish it.

I actually made a toeless sock just because I wanted to get it off my needles but it turned out great becuase my son loves to wear it on his foot (way too big for him) when he is playing dress up. I think I'll try to make him a tool belt for when he wants to be Bob the Builder.. What am I saying!! more projects I won't finish! Bad Red. No Cookie!

Anyway I'm going to go try to finish some of these endless projects.
Welcome to Redden Rants. This is going to be where I write down all of the things that go on in my life including how annoying Barrens chat is!!

I am a big time WoW player and if you use the armory to look up my name I am almost every Redden listed. I have characters named Redden on 7 different servers. I also have chacters with the word Red in them on several servers. My main relms are Farstriders, Aerie Peak, Anub'arak, and Andorhal.

I play both Alliance and Horde but lately horde is what I have been favoring. I love my troll. My main class is warrior but I have dabbled in every class and race they offer.

I am also a fanatic of knitting. I have just recently started to combine my two loves with some horde symbol color charts. I will be posting some of these ideas later but one of them came from another blog called Musings of an undead podcasting knitter.
