All shaping up rather nicely

So you block it (yes, even the tiny things, yes, every time, yes, it matters).

Then you stuff it.

And stuffing it feels rather like wrestling with a drunk octopus.  But with sufficient time and fiddling, it starts to take shape.

And a bit later its actually starts to look like a tree.

Well…a knitted tree. I realize it’s not going to fool anyone into thinking it’s a real tree (especially with the whole purple thing).  But as far as knitted trees go, I’m rather smitten!

Pattern coming soon (think next week)…do the mailing list thing if you want to hear when it drops.  Meanwhile, I need to work on my forest management plan…I definitely need some more acres under cultivation.
