Latvian Braid Belt

I've been in love with the Latvian Braid since first seeing it. I have been super excited to use it somehow, some where!!
I ended up knitting this belt in the round, left a long enough loop of yarn, and cut it right down the middle for the fringe on the ends. Then just tied those loose ends off. :)
It worked up awesome with a Lucky Lamb dark blue and Treasure Island in worsted weight.
My sweet sister then sewed a ribbon backing on it leaving about 15" on each side for tying room.
The belt measures about 64" long minus the fringe.
It was just what i needed to funky up some of my summer wardrobe. :)

Durga Socks

All of my patterns come from wanting or needing to create something for my kids or myself. I'm a practicing yogi and yoga is a huge part of my world! So these little Egyptian inspired socks (almost spats) are perfect for practicing in or just wearing around the house. I don't think I've taken them off since creating them on my way to Nashville.  The pattern is available on Ravelry. Go check it out!
