Heya...

So I thought I'd post my first real project. It's a dice bag (for my D&D dice... I play occasionally... like once every two months) based off the fibonacci sequence (1, 2, 3, 5, 8)



Next up might be a hat... but I'm a little leary of it because I am not so good with knitting in the round on double pointed needles, this bag was that technique and I got a little bit of stretched stitches on the points where I was switching needles. So I might do a scarf instead lol.

Nice, Linds! What's D&D? Dungeons and Dragons? That game is still around?

Yes... Dungeons & Dragons...

They are up to version 4.0 now... but the group I play with uses 3.5 rules/books (partially because to upgrade to 4.0 requires a lot of money buying new manuals and stuff and also they changed the mechanics of the game a lot in 4.0 and the group I play with prefers 3.5)

I play a half-elf druid... my favorite spell is CHAIN LIGHTNING!!! Where I get to call down bolts of lighting on bad guys... which are even more powerful if we are outside and there is rain in the air! I also have a wolf for an "animal companion" :D Next time we play I'll have to take pictures of the miniatures and how we set up the game etc.

I say go for the hat too! (and I love that your dice match their new bag!)
HAHAHAHA... I spent like literally 20 minutes in the gaming store picking out those dice.

I picked the yarn to match the dice... of course lol.

I'm such a girl... Scott (the guy who runs the D&D... he's the "dungeon master") teased me that I won't be a true D&D player til I got my own dice and had a "d&d" outfit... (meaning... loose fitting sweatpants/tshirt/sweatshirt)...

so next "gaming" day I show up in my "druid" shirt... (this is Paul... we were playing the card came Fluxx)

(can't see it too well but it's a pretty tye-dyed fitted shirt with pleated cap sleeves in blue/green)

Of course then Scott said I had to start eating cheetos, living in my parent's basement, and gain 50 lbs.

HAHA!! hilarious!! did you tell him you that the 50 lbs only applies to the men who live in their parent's basements? that the girls who did get to maintain their lithe selves? (hey, you can't kill all his dreams at once, right?LOL)

I think I just said... "that is just not happening!"

Last week, Paul and I showed up with veggies and dip... (the usual fare is Taquitos and other frozen prepared foods... uggh!)

Not an easy task to knit with a set of double pointed needles and not have stretched stitches. I am just getting back into knitting (last winter) and knitted a pair of mittens in the round. I was getting better by the time I was done. One mitten looks pretty good; the first one, not so great.

I cheat when I knit and use the nifty knitter or whatever it is called. The kids love it because they can do it. I don't have the patience to actually knit.

Thanks Allie! It really wasn't hard. Are you on Ravelry? That's where I found the pattern for that bag. It was just knit/purl... some yarn overs and knit2together.

The icord was fun too.

Next up... BUTTERFLY hat! (to practice slipping stitches and picking them back up again.)

I am on ravelry but haven't looked at it much. I guess I should, though. I would like to get some practice on double points, as I've just been using straight or knitting straight on rounds.

Yeah... I specifically picked this dice bag pattern because it was small and I'd have to teach myself how to knit in the round on the DPN.

Now I have to decide if I want to try knitting my hat in the round on a circular needle or on double points.
