ooohh i've been wanting to make something with that stitch, it looks great!! pretty color too  Cheesy

Use a really thin delicate yarn.  I tried it with dk and it doesn't look as good.  This one was 6 st - 1" on #4's.

I found the stitch pattern on knitting.about.com -- http://knitting.about.com/library/blseafoam.htm

Its a really easy stitch that looks great!  One of the nice things about lace scarves are that they are great for fall, winter AND spring.  I made this from old reynolds orient express silk on #4.  It looks dressy so I can wear it to work.  Two years of work finished in between hundreds of other projects.   Smiley

I did it! Though, I did the version with d-rings and a bow.

I made everyone who stopped at the house look at the tomato as it was growing.  It still cracks me up.  Smiley

thats a great belt! Plus it actually looks like it would stay put rather than moving around...

True - and since its cut on the bias, it moves with you.

I guess so.  I don't think you can cut pleather on the bias.  And the knot might be tough if its really stiff.  But you could always add a d-ring instead so you don't have to knot it!

That is awesome.
What kind of fabric did you use?

I'm not 100% sure as I got it from my sisters Mother in Law.  I think its brocade and it's definitely decorator fabric - very heavy and thick, which is perfect for this type of belt.

So, my garden itself is not very exciting... I battle the squirrels and I try and stay as organic as possible.  We get a drought every year in Delaware, so my vegetables are usually stunted a little.  But not this tomato.  This tomato is the largest tomato I've ever grown and definitely the most anatomically correct thing I have ever seen, so far as vege's go!

The front, with 'his' appendage:

But wait, it gets better!  This tomato, I kid you not, has a butt!


I held on to this tomato as long as I could but about two weeks ago, I knew it would go bad if I didn't eat it - ugh, no pun intended.  Funny thing is, no one wold eat the little penis.  The rest of the tomato was great though!

Here is the actualy garden from the left

and the right


In additon to phallic tomatoes, this year I am growing (from left to right in the two pictures) Basil, sage, green beans, zuchini, red pepper, sweet bananna pepper, tomatoes (with marigolds to keep the slugs away - so far, it works), rosemary, green pepper, coriander, parsley and mini water melon.  The evil squirrels stole the first water melon when it was two inches big and now I spray them with hot pepper oil to keep the buggers at bay. 

Next year I'll be in an apartment and won't be able to have a garden so I'm trying to go all out this year.

I love this belt.  It is much more wearable than the other wide belts I see in the magazines these days. Great job!

I am very short - under five feet.  Wide belts usually make me look shorter and wider than i already am.  This is the only wide belt I've ever been happy with on my body.
