These are my two recent projects: Corset top from Interweave (free pattern), and Lovlund (Kornelia Hamilton's pattern). For the Corset top I used recommended yarn (Filatura di Crosa Elena). I enjoyed using it: no splitting even though it is a ribbon yarn. The neck opening turned out too wide, so I had to crochet around it. The pattern offers various knitting techniques: DPN's, circilar and flat. Certainly not boring!
Lovlund presented a little bit of a challenge: Hana Silk from Noro felt weird, maybe because I am mostly used to cotton, wool, and linen. However when done, the top is very pleasant to wear. Here again I had to crochet around the neck opening to make it a little smaller.
