I'm always at a loss when this particular theme comes up. When one thinks of the "Great Outdoors", what usually springs to mind is some form of sturdy outerwear in a hardy wool: capes, cloaks, skating costumes, shooting costumes and so on. But alas, I live in the great state of California, where the sun tries it's best to roast everything it touches.
Oh well, I can always hope for colder weather
The wool for this hood was going to be a skirt before the moths got at it. It's such a pity, as it's such a cheery cherry red. The pattern is my trusty Kay Fig winter hood pattern.
