Very nice! Lovely colors too!

I'm working on my Boneyard. It's gotten big, and I needed to put it down for a bit. Those rows are LOOONNNG!

Thank you Andy

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

Beautiful handiwork! Who is the lucky person who gets to wear it? I'm sure they will wear it with pride. Well done.

I am the lucky person who wears it, it is nice and warm.

Beautiful, Craig! How big is it?

Craig's picture

Tom at it's widest point it measures about 64"

Wow. By widest point I'm taking it that you mean the diagonal. So if it's just over five feet on the diagonal, the sides (according to Pythagoras) are very close to four feet long. That's a very long row. I've never knitted a row that long. Did you use two long (60") circulars to knit it?

Very nice work. That has been on my list for too long - you inspire me.

Hi Aaron
The yarn is kettle dyed by a New Zealand company called Creative Fibres(?).The colour is Blackberry.
The rows were long but I think that the piece I am working on now has longer rows...............

It's BEAUTIFUL Craig! I made one for my ex, but now it's time to make one for me!

It's really quite stunning Craig. Terrific work! Now you have me itching to get started on a shawl.

Looks very nice. Stephen West is a good designer and his patterns are well explained, I've done Boneyard and a couple of Daybreaks and I'm very happy with them.

Very nice. I just love that colorway - lots of purple, according to the monitor I'm using. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
