and have i sewn the ends in?
no
and is the zip squint?
yup
and have I been wearing it constantly for several days?
of course.

Details:
knit from the top down in one piece with NO seams with rowan polar on 8mm needles.

and the name?
when I lived in Aberdeen (I went to uni there for a year) there was a perfectly manicured grassy slope outside my building with a single tree on it. If you looked at it from a funny angle it looked like there was nothing else in the world except a perfect kids drawing sort of tree on a plastic perfect slope. The apocalypse tree. And because if the apocalypse comes you want to be cozy, don’t you?
