The die has been cast…

I mean that literally! But first…

I was right last week as to what number three was. To fully sort that out a bit of the roof needs fixing and a PIV unit needs installing. In 6 days I had to drop £6K. Not all at once, thankfully, my nest egg isn’t that deep, but it’s now very, very small.

I doubt even the tiny dragons from the other week would want to have it as their hoard!

Subsequently I will be dusting off the commissions info and reopen them. I have lots of projects and things planned, but nothing that can’t wait if something interesting pops up from it.

Now back to the interesting stuff! Things are about to get a little dicey!

This is Reyth, my kobold barbarian pathfinder character. And next to the little guy? A beautiful set of custom dice, inspired by Reyth, even so far as to have my own snakes shedded skin in there to represent the dragon scales… I am in love, not gonna lie.

Here is SpectralPhantoms info, in case anyone feels like perusing the shinies… (He takes commissions too, so if you have a specific idea…). Instagram account. Facebook account.

Now, such precious shinies need a special bag to keep them safe, but what kind of bag?

And this thought here, is where things went awry. Let’s begin with the first, yes, the first layer of soft protection for the dice.

I knit a pentagon (rectangle with triangle on top, nothing fancy) following Princess Franklin Plaid Collar by Franklin Habit (free pattern on Knitty and on Ravelry) with a few minor tweaks to allow for the shape. A little bit of mattress stitch around the edges to add to the ‘this is a woven bit of material, honest’ look and a pretty viking bead and voila!

A little tartan purse for my tartan wearing kobold.

Reyth definitely seems pleased. If you roll on by next week, you’ll get to see the next layer of dice bags!

‘Til then, stay safe.

I fell off the sheep and bought a bunch of cones of fine machine yarn, just the perfect thickness for tablet weaving. And I wasn’t going to turn down yarny gifts!

    Days like today make me very glad I don’t have a Facebook or Instagram account… Those are some incredibly pretty dice!

    Everything about today’s post (apart from the finale of your disasters) is absolutely incredible. I love your kobold, the dice are amazing (a new follower has been gained on insta) and that dice bag is the *chefs kiss*.

    I don’t know how you intend to best it!

      Oh wait until the finale…

      But yeah, I am ridiculously happy with the dice and all my knitted things thing it all together. It’s been an incredibly fun project.
