I needed a belt...


...I got a pair of brown jeans for Christmas...and as I'm sort of an hourglass shaped gal...they fit pretty well around my keester...but they don't want to stay up...because there's this gap at the waist...and unlike the youth of today...I don't like my trousers falling down...nor do I like to be constantly hiking them back up...

...so...I needed a belt...

...so of course I grabbed one of my leftover curtain rings...and started crocheting with some black and brown yarn from my stash...

...just a few minutes worth of double crochet later...and I have a belt...and my trousers stay put...
