A few weeks ago I started to knit a cowl using bits and pieces of yarns that I had collected from previous projects or odd balls of yarn that couldn't be resisted on visits to wool shops. I knew one day they would come in useful.
I used a circular needle and by hanging it around my neck I decided how many stitches I needed to cast on and then I began to knit continuously until it was a width that I liked. I changed yarn every few rounds using lots of different weights of wool.
