Finished Object/Fresh Off! or FO in knitter's lingo

I finished a large project last night with my absolute favorite yarn colorway - Kelp Forest. It was dyed by a very talented dyer and a great person Leidy of Western Sky Knits. The ladies of Western Sky Knits are my favorite peeps.  Sarah, my old cohort, is there now since Tree Frog Knits had to close.  So of course it makes them even more special!

I had the hardest time finding the right pattern to use this yarn.  It was a sport weight and I had just two precious skeins of it and no contrasting colors to work with.  Luckily, I found a simple and pretty pattern by a great Finish designer, Verra, of 100% Rain.  She is also the designer of the Stripe Study shawl I recently completed and has many more designs I have my eye on.

I love how this one drapes and stays on.  The yarn is dyed to perfection and just is so soft.  The colors are so perfect and vibrant, and green!!

I only have one lonely sock in my basket to finish now.  A new pattern just came out and I need to do it and since I'm lucky enough to be one of the moderators for the group, I know I'll need to help answer questions.  It will be the hardest knit I've yet to do - I'm already nervous about it!  Now if I could just decide who it will be for!  Looks like Logan and I are heading to the yarn store tomorrow!
