My current knitting is the Roscalie Vest. Yes, knitting with wool in the summer using autumn colors! It came as a kit from Virtual Yarns here Roscalie Vest It will be my first steeks too. Yikes! I did change the ribbing to a corrugated rib. I didn't care for the pattern directions and wanted it a little wider.
I kept seeing this shawl on Ravelry. I love the look of pleats. Finally I saw one in this color and with this yarn. I had the Jaeger Extra Fine Merino on hand for another project I had since decided against. It's not blocked yet. I see it making the perfect shawl for a cold winter night. The pattern is here Mara Shawl Link is on Ravelry. Or here Madeline Tosh on the web.
