A Finished Object!
Ruffled Corset Belt
Was this ever a quick and easy piece! I started it a couple of days ago, and have been working on it while watching my "free" movie hours over at Netflix. This has gone fast and I still have lots of movie hours left. This wide belt was designed by Tricia Royal and appears in The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller. This is the second piece I've made from this book and I've still got my eye on Violet Beauregard.
Edited to add:
I was in a hurry to do this post; between brochures for shops and festivals. I forgot to mention that the gorgeous yarn for this belt came from Lowder Colours Farm in Kellyville, Oklahoma. I was fortunate enough to get it in the Fiber Femmes swap I participated in this winter. It is beautiful yarn with lots of life and feels wonderful in the finished belt. I can't wait for the weather to get cool enough for me to wear it!
Something on knitting needles!
I taught someone to knit this weekend! Pretty good, huh, since I'm knitting challenged myself!
