I wanted to share a couple of projects I recently finished. There are more details posted on ravelry in case you're interested (raycarlburg). The first is the Boneyard Shawl design by Stephen West. I used a cotton/silk blend and went up about 2 needle sizes from the ball band's suggestion so that I could get the drape I wanted.
The other is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Nalgar (or Reverse Raglan) sweater. It was done from the bottom up and I used Punta Merino. At the underarms, you begin working increases that shape the beginning of the sleeves. At some point, the sleeve section is large enough to join and finish working the sleeves in the round. The only seam is from the neck down to where the reverse raglan increase lines meet at the top of the sleeve. I tried a few textured stitches, but stockinette shows this yarn off the best, so this pattern seemed like a good choice. I also like it for its simplicity and clever approach to shaping.
Take care, guys!
