FO Friday: A Lonely Tree Ta-dah!

PATTERN: The Lonely Tree Shawl by Silvia Bo Bilvia
YARN: Araucania Nature Wool (Worsted) - 98g/ 1 skein
NEEDLES: 5.5mm

After checking, double-checking, and triple-checking, I'm sure this was made exactly to the pattern (minus the odd little error, but let's just ignore those) and nothing is missing so I needn't have worried about the yarn - in the end it took *just* under 1 skein which means I have almost half a skein left over despite using slightly larger needles. I love the FO and what's more it goes with my red clogs!

If you're thinking you couldn't knit a chart or haven't tried a lacy project before (I know some of you are after various Facebook and Instagram comments), this free pattern could be just right for you. There is nothing complicated, the charts are clear and the thick yarn/big needles mean it's finished in no time. I've spotted the bigger bulky version - The Lonely Winter Tree so that's been added to my queue. For fear of leaf overload I think I'll wait a while before making it. 

 I'll be back on Sunday with my Year of Projects update. See you then.

  18. Very pretty! I like the idea of the larger needles since knitting always takes me forever to do...
