If you look very carefully, you might be able to see that this is a palm tree. I'm sure its not the pattern, but me. I am having difficulty with my tension so I've been watching videos on youtube to try to improve. This was my first experience with a pattern and after I got into the swing of working line by line it was ok. I've been on a yarn spending spree this week and I spent over $80 but the good thing is that everything I ordered is for Xmas presents. I hope I have better luck with this next project!
