No-Fade So Faded Knit Sweater

I knit two fingering-weight sweaters, and it's not even halfway through 2018. Woohoo!

I've heard from several knitters that the famous trendy So Faded sweater is perfect for any fingering-weight yarn project. I spotted this galaxy-esque yarn at SAFF this past fall, and I knew I had to have it for something.

Pattern: So Faded by Andrea Mowry
Yarn: Fiber Seed Sprout Sock in Interstellar, Hedgehog Sock in Electric leftover from my Sunset Highway sweater, and oddments of Malabrigo Sock in Reflecting Pool leftover from my dad's Christmas socks

It's clear that I didn't have a plan for this sweater, but that's ok. The sleeves aren't as long as I thought they could be given the yarn I had, and I ended up throwing in some scrap yarn for the cuffs and neckline which I hadn't originally planned on doing.

The good thing about having a huge yarn stash is that you can do practically ANYTHING in an emergency. The Malabrigo matches the green from the Interstellar yarn exactly, which was kind of creepy.

This sweater is soft and comfy, and I'm excited to wear it when the weather calls for it.
