The pattern is called "Powdered Courage". The designer is a climber, so I assume it will meet all the specifications that a climber needs. Here it is is it's prefelted state.
And here it is after being felted. I'm not an experienced felter, so I was quite pleased with the outcome!
The yarn is Cascade 220, which left no mess in my front loading washing machine. I put the bag into a pillow case, and put it thru a wash cycle - hot/cold. I was amazed - and pleased!
Hopefully it will help him hang on a little better! LOL! I snagged this photo from his facebook page. (Probably a cool action photo - yeah - right!!) I have yet to hear the story behind the "event" happening here, but I do know he is ok......we have heard from him since. Probably I don't really want to know the story...... I set up my Facebook account so that I could see the photos that he posted in his page. I oftentimes wonder about the wisdom in my thinking....or lack there of.
