Some time ago, a girl came into the store where I work at.
She was wearing a store bought sweater, with a very strange shape, and it had this amazing detailig: It had two braids, one horizontal and one vertical, that crossed over the back. The braids were not knit with the sweater. They were long straps of knitted fabric, braided and sewn to the main sweater.
It was amazing. The shape: not so much, but the braids kept me thinking about them for days!
So as I rode on the bus I kept imagining how could I translate that into something one could actually knit all together! Braids coming in opposite directions... I just couldn't figure it out!
And then, slowly this idea began taking shape. And I sketched.
I wanted to try something different. And since I love Madelinetosh Yarns, and I have ony tried one of their multiple and awesome bases, it was clear that I needed to try another one! The bad thing about these yarns is that they are not available where I live (we don't have much down here), so waiting for the yarn to arrive took AGES!
But it was well worth the wait, oh yes! I received my 9 skeins of Madelinetosh Chunky, in colorway Tart.
Oh boy, this colorway rocks or what??????
And then I started playing with my yarn...

So far, it is looking great. The cable is not exactly where I had envisioned it, but I am ok with it!
Hope you all like it too!
