I need to make a choice

The first part of the raranga/weaving course I'm doing is complete and I have acquired some basic skills so now I need to decide what my major focus will be.

Robin Weaves Korowai

In the last couple of weeks I have started a few new projects. Two small ones and a bigger one. This first one is using up some short pieces of very thick string. I decided to do it upside down i.e. from the top down so I have used black wool tags which are easy to get out of the way when I work under them. I hope it will be a cloak for a doll.

And I have finished this pheasant shoulder korowai And this small cloak with a black doll to display it on. It feels good finishing things. This cloak represents the sea. The feathers are blues and greens…
