Glenn's Composition (Raglan-Sleeved Henley)

Now that NYC is in its first heat advisory of the year (in June!), I've picked back up my needles for some winter-weight knitting. Doh! Well, the idea is for the projects to be finished in time for the colder weather, which means getting a jump now.
My first cold-weather sweater is Glenn's Raglan-Sleeved Henley from Bruce Weinstein's Knits Men Want. I am using Madeline Tosh Vintage yarn in Composition Book Gray, hence the name for this project. The color really is stunning. The yarn is very tightly wound and, as a result, is somewhat stiff. It is somewhat difficult to knit, but would probably be a good yarn for something like a jacket.
