Well, my Washington Square project is stalled. Again. So far my yarn search hasn't uncovered the missing skein. At this point I'm not even sure it exists. In the process of hunting, I did empty a basket that contained a random collection of odd balls and yarn that I had selected for a mitten project . . . a good reminder that winter is coming and I could use more mittens.
I thought my stash was pretty well organized, but this search has turned into a good excuse to dig a little deeper. I'm not feeling defeated. Today I need to give the house a quick tidy - notice the operative word quick - and I hope that momentum will carry over to the yarn search.
It might be time to entertain the notion of a Plan B. My theory is that if I have another option brewing, the missing yarn will turn up. While I consider the options, I can work on this.
Flaming Desire, the second sock. There are plenty of other projects in the works, and I'm not going to sit idle waiting for a skein of yarn to surface.
