Hi all,

I'm drafting the plans for my second sweater, and I'm wondering if anybody can help me select the best sort of yarn.  (I'm not yet good at figuring out which materials have the best drape and are most suited for my project.)

Essentially, the plan is to create an oversized(ish) sweater that uses a 2x2 or a 2x1 rib.  Since ribbed patterns have a tendency to stretch, I'm guessing that my material be of the sort that doesn't loosen up too much after it's knitted (otherwise, I'll end up with an exceptionally large sweater!).

Any ideas? Suggestions?  Does anyone know of a good resource for general yarn selection?

Thanks--!
