[knitting] White Tree of Gondor

One of the challenges this month is to make something based on a nerdery other than your own team's (I'm Team Iron Throne). I'm still slowly-but-surely working on afghan squares for a aran blanket, so I chose this block to make:

Tree of Gondor

It's from the Great American Aran Afghan booklet but looks like the White Tree of Gondor from the Lord of the Rings.

I saw the chart for this block and through, "Oh man, here we go." But it was a quick and fun pattern to work on- the landscape and tree and side cables progressed logically. Based on someone else's recommendation, I printed out the chart and color-coded all of the different cables, which helped immensely.
