Shetlands Knitting Belt

I just received this traditional knitting belt from Jamieson & Smith in the Shetland Islands. I also ordered the 2 sets of 40 cm DPN's.

I've played around a bit with this and I can see how it increases one's knitting speed. It takes a bit to get used to, especially the long DPN's.

Has any MWK member had any experience using the knitting belt? Does anyone know some tutorial or information links about it?

Hi Jesse, I have no experience with the belt, but I like your new photo.
