bellydance scarf


One thing I love about bellydancing is the costumes and costume-making opportunities! I haven't crocheted anything since I was a kid, but I re-learned how to do it in order to make this hip scarf. It's crocheted out of a thin ribbon yarn and the fringe is stitched on. It might become more ornate over time (I have these perfect beads....) but for now, it's wearable. Shimmy shimmy!

Next up in the bellydance department...jewelry. This week I acquired some old middle eastern coins that are destined to become a necklace and coin belt. We'll see when I get around to that.

Lady Eleanor is eyeing me dolefully, for she has been horribly neglected lately. She's making me feel guilty.

I didn't get to see it up close, but from what I saw it is tooooo cute!!! I knit now a lot more than I crochet, but I may have to make one of these :)

After seeing that belly dance scarf in person... all I can say is "Whoa baby"! That is a gorgeous color and the fringe matched perfectly, great job! Of course now we want to see you wearing it!
