I'm working on Stephen West's Boneyard Shawl (with a little help from WillyG!). Since I'm still healing from a Very Bad Case of tennis/knitting elbow, I'm figuring it all out in Portuguese knitting, which means I had to figure out the M1 right and the M1 left, which I ended up doing a lifted increase to the right (and to the left). I'm using Blue Ridge Yarn's handpainted Cotton Candy, which is amazing - the real thing is just as bright and luminous as the pic. I'll post more pics when I'm done.

Yum - luminous indeed! I hope you find a technique that lets you knit pain-free.

Great colours, whenyou find a pain free way of knitting let me know, i am in the same boat at the moment.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

I love Boneyard (kinda love Stephen West), and it will look spectacular in this yarn colorway. Can't wait to see the final result.

What an eye-popper! Lots of luck on working out a way to knit without discomfort. I have to watch myself so it doesn't flare up my wrists. Pretty good, so far, on the left hand [my dominant one] but if I knit right handed, the wrist sure lets me know it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Boneyard is a great pattern, I love it and his Daybreak as well.
