I recently started taking belly dancing classes at Arabesque Dance & Fitness in Chicago. After a long, cold winter, I wanted to start moving again. After seeing a friend perform at one of their haflas, I decided to sign up.
I absolutely love the classes so far, so much so that I decided to design a chainmail belly dance belt. I had disks, rings, and chain, and when I got an idea, I quickly doodled it on a scrap of paper.
I started working obsessively on it immediately. I finished it last night, and I'm so thrilled with how it turned out.
Now that it's done, I guess I'll go back to knitting that sweater I started a couple weeks ago. If I finish it soon, I might be able to wear it once before it gets too warm.
