Description

I live in a cold place. A very humid and moderately windy valley. Humid + cold wind = a very freezing me! So here, my solution : wear a blanket! Of course, I will not approve of sleeved molten blanckets (eg snuggies) or those sweatshirt onesies that “keep you warm and make you the talk of the local football game, so call right now!”.

So, I have made this cape made out of blue and black wool with a cinched in waist. I can wear it with this belt of with the black wool band I also made. Keeps me toasty warm, hence happy. :D

    Nice! You don’t look like you’re wearing a blanket at all.
