I was horrified when I found this unfinished project from almost two (!!) years ago, so I made a vow to finish it this summer.  I couldn't find the yarn they used in the pattern so I substituted Cascade 220, and just sort of loosely followed the pattern since my gauge and measurements were way off.

This was the first time I've felted anything in the washing machine and I think it worked pretty well, I only had to put it through once. (Hence, it only cost me a dollar).  It could have gone more, but I think it looks good as is.   There are also a few more pictures on my blog, if interested.

Ciao!
