I needed a belt for my outfit tonight. So I took my 11s and some black rexlace and here it is. Sorry for the crappy pics.  Digi is on the fritz.

I like! I like!

Got a pattern to share? ... AND ... Where I can find "rexlace"? (Whatever that is.)

Well, there's not really much of a pattern. I casted on 5 sts and garter stitched till desired length. You can get lanyarnd string at any craft store. It's awesome stuff. :-) I want to make a knitted wrist cuff out of it

That's so punk rock, I can't even believe it. I so wish I kept my old lanyard string, I had a TON. Maybe I'll go get some at Micheals or something. That belt would look awesome in...BRIGHT GREEN. Oh wow, that would be amazing.

I am a noob to belt making, where do I get the D-rings? Would Micheals have them?

that is super cool! i was just staring at my four giant rolls of lanyard string the other day, thinking, "what the hell should i do w/ this?" i tried crocheting some, but it was a little difficult. this makes me tempted to pick up my knitting needles and try making one. only problem is, i can't knit for shit, which is why i crochet! Cheesy
