I keep calling this "the fing" on facebook. It's a cloak as detailed as Sewing 2 in this post. It's technically done now. I have some cosmetic things I want to do to it (to hide a seam I botched up) and it needs a third button.
I'm also going to make a hood to go with it, but my bobbin has emptied (halfway through sewing a buttonhole) and I need to reload it with a different colour so I can get on with Sewing 3 (the red version of this) and quite frankly it's annoying me. I've been having tension issues with the sewing machine as well.

Anyway, a couple of pics...

This is a Christmas present for my best friend (he knows about it because he had to pick the colours). I've called it the "Pathfinder Fibonacci" as the colours match the colours we use for Pathfinder LARP, and the pattern is this Fibonacci sequence scarf, although I've added an extra step, so I'm going from 55, as he's a tall lanky bloke (this is causing some issues as I'm burning through wool at a rate of knots).
I'm about 20% throu…
