and have i sewn the ends in?
and is the zip squint?
and have I been wearing it constantly for several days?
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?
Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
