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?

I am constantly amazed at the ingenuity of man......so much of what was known has been lost. Thanks for sharing.
In the darkest part of Sherwoods glade, in the thickest part of the wood, there are those who say, can still be seen, the ghost of Robin Hood.
