Over the weekend I was reminded of the benefit of having more than one knitting project under construction. The project I had planned to work on hit a snag . . . a snag that doesn't have a quick and easy fix. In fact the only solution might be a completely different yarn base, but that requires time to order and dye the yarn.
Instead of fretting, I let go of that project and turned my attention to one where I could easily make forward progress.
Zephyr Cove to the rescue. This project isn't too taxing. I've moved from solid garter to striped garter. Back and forth, back and forth . . . creating stripes while I ponder my problem project.
