Made: So Faded Sweater

Hi guys, I finished knitting my So Faded Sweater! 

Ta da!

Originally, I only planned to use white, black, and grey yarns, but I found a skein of Electric Rainbow in my stash and knew I had to add it in. I love how it turned out!

I used all Madelinetosh yarn. The colors, from top to bottom, are:
Night Fell
Electric Rainbow
Smokestack Optic (just the grey ribbed hem and cuffs)

I think I'll be wearing this a lot this winter. I have several other knitting projects on the needles and in my queue, but it would be fun to make another one of these someday in a different color scheme. I wonder if either of my kids would wear one. A children's version might knit up pretty quickly!

Here's the So Faded pattern on Ravelry

I'm using the leftover yarn to make a pair of socks (one down, one to go). I think I might make a habit of using up extra sweater yarn to make matching socks - could I be any knit-nerdier??
