I will definitely be bringing it with me to the Retreat. I figure there will be some expert seamers there!
In the meantime, I've been knitting the belt on my lunch break. I've developed a newfound LOVE for tweed stitch, though next time I'll use a slightly neater design than the one I'm using (first time doing tweed stitch, so I'll run with it.)
Anyway, hope to see some of you there! Until then, keep on trucking, fellas!
