Getting Witchy!

I have a finished project to share that I'm super excited about - and have many pictures of, so prepare yourselves. This is the Lestrange Cloak from the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits that came out last year. I've been working on it since May. It wasn't a difficult knit, but there was lots more to it than I thought. I used a cotton/nylon blend yarn that's been in my stash for a long time that's machine washable - but it left a layer of fuzz all over the dryer when I washed and dried it last night. Hopefully that won't happen again. Okay, on to the pictures!
I'm still trying to figure out my best smiling face. I look grouchy but, trust me, I'm not. I plan to make a magenta dress to wear under this, probably bias cut. A pair of Stevie Nicks boots would be great, too. What do you think?

Wow, that looks such fine work, though I'm guessing it was far more complicated that you're saying! I agree with your styling ideas, that would look brilliant. xx

Very nice. It'd look great with boots. I sympathize on the facial expression thing. I have one look (smile) that's okay; the rest look like I have a thorn in my paw.
