I thought some would find this short video educational or inspirational. This whole channel is worth subscribing to.

Fascinating, Thanks for the link :P

Fun!

I love the "baseball cap" reference: if memory serves caedmon's group up in AK has made the same connection.
(Also the cocks-comb look takes on a whole new dimension once you've been around roosters a while. :mrgreen: )

Anyhow, I've been needing to make a proper weather hood at some point soon, probably deriving from the Skjoldehamn pattern.
Since it doesn't take a lot of fabric, I'm thinking of splurging on either strichloden or a tweed. Any suggestions/thoughts/advice on fabric choice?
