I've now got a few 'simple' projects on the go: my granny stripe blanket, several napkins left to edge and now this chunky cowl. I saw something similar on my blog hopping travels but forgot to bookmark it. There was no pattern reference so I am just winging it and using the dimensions of the cowl I made from Erika Knight's Crochet Workshop (my favourite crochet book to date).
I like to flit from one thing to another and eventually things do get finished but feel free to leave a nagging comment if I publish a post about starting yet another project before I have finished any of these!
Oh and hope you like the header update! I had to dig out my netbook to update all the widgets and gadgets because I have been using blogger on iPad for posting which is very limiting (but quick).
