Both of my current works in progress are in the land stockinette. First I have the Yoke Leaf Top from Knit.1 Spring/summer 2009 (ravelry link). The yarn is Berroco Comfort, a nylon/acrylic blend. I'm hoping the sweater will be cool enough for summer. It's sleeveless, but the nylon might not be that great in hot weather. I really love the leaf design on the yoke. I've already done the I-cord trim on the armholes because I wanted to test out the fit. I just have the neck I-cord and the remaining stockinette body section to do.
I've also cast on for the ubiquitous Hey,Teach! from knitty.com. 1172 ravelers can't be wrong. Miracle of miracles, I'm actually using the recommended Knit One Crochet Too 2nd Time Cotton. I think this is the first garment in which I'm not doing a yarn substitution. I really like this yarn. The hank feels stiff, but once knitted, the garment is really soft with a nice drape.
