A commission from a friend whom paid me in wool, and then some more wool!

This is a 40k inspired dice bag for him, he’s a Chaos Marines player, and they worship Khorne, so one side has his symbol (above) and the other…

I do love knitting dice bags, and all if them use the free pattern Cthulhu Dice Bag! by A. A. Leavitt-Reynolds for numbers. Engel created the charts for this particular bag however.

In other knitting nephew’s, I have a few knitting projects done or near done but gave just taken on a rather big undertaking so will feed you those week by week whilst I’m busy with that project.

There’s been no spinning or dying this week – I have been ripping apart the conservatory in a bid to create more space, it’s been hard work!

This weekend we’ve managed a few social distance play dates, and j am loving being with other people – i’m an introvert, but lockdown has shown me that I do need others company on occasion!

Short post today as I am shattered from all this socialising, and I’ll see you all next week with my just completed project – but no more spoilers as it’s a surprise for someone!

That’s right. Dice bags.

It all started with this one:

Free pattern – Cthulhu Dice Bag by Arcana Vitae – though I worked this one, and all of them, on 3.75 mm. This is one of about…10? Different colours of cthulhus, backgrounds, eyes, i-cords…

But after my first, I quickly started to use this pattern as a a base and any chart I fancied with it.

So, cats? (Own chart)

Or fish? (Engels chart this time)

Less nature? Alright, Binary code?

(This is based on the free pattern Binary by Christine Domoulin, and this particular bag is coded, it reads – EngelCRLF – the CRLF is the command for carriage return, line feed. Think typewriters!

More geeky? How about the Aquila logo from 40K?

(Logo is from the free Ravelry pattern ‘Warhammer Double Knit Scarf’ by Emma Littlehales)

More cute?

Gotta love Pusheen the cat! (Charts pulled from google)

There’s been more, a VW campervan, fish bones, the 40K ork logo to name but a few, lots get gifted before I get a chance to photograph them!

I have a tradition with gaming group friends in particular – the first birthday they celebrate with the group, they get a dice bag. *Shrug* Its just one of those things. Pusheen was the one I made the other week, the VW campervan the one before…who knows what next! Though I am tempted to make me a new cat one – the red and black one at the start of this post is mine, before I was confident with color changes and patterns, but part of me think I’ll lose all my awesome dice luck if I do…

Till next week, and happy St Andrews!
