Sometimes, there are times when my brain doesn't want to think, or my body just doesn't have the energy to think about what I'm doing. In those circumstances, or when I know I only have a few minutes, I like to have something that doesn't require a lot of effort, and is conducive to picking and down. This is my new "mindless" project".
It will be a crocheted blanket, using up all my scraps of DK thickness yarn. The joy of it is, there are no rules, each stripe is different, and I'll never know what will be next.
This is where I am so far, and I love it. My only regret-I didn't make it wide enough to fit my bed!
