May 30 2008The idea for this tree has been
running around in the brain for a long time.
I didn’t have any idea how much yarn might be used,
so when I found green yarns in Spotlight I bought up big,
and started making the tree with about 48 balls of assorted yarns
in the stash.
The trunk is a broomstick, there is the usual wire and beads, held sort of upright with a pile of five books.
It took three very long days to tie on just 22 of the 48 balls of yarn.
This is about the most boring task I have ever set myself.
However, I knew after half a day the tree was going to look OK.
The only problem I have with the result is that I don’t want to add too many decorations because the tree itself looks so good.
