Finished Lily's cloak

Three months work has finally seen the end of Lily's kakahu. I am pleased with it although the taaniko turned out a bit wider in the cotton I used than perhaps I would have liked. However it has all come together well. Here is a photo mid taaniko to show that the taaniko is really woven and not a tapestry.
 The finished cloak, of course,  does not lie flat as it has shaping in it. Now is just a matter of packing it up and sending it off. Not an easy task.

Now I have started a new cloak for an unveiling. It will only have a few rows of feathers so I have started on the taaniko already.  I'm almost up to the middle row.
