In the midst of several demands, sometimes you need a little knitting break.  Therapy is aptly named with mindless garter stripes, simple eyelets & a picot edging.  It is almost mindless, easy to put down and pick up so you can squeeze it in among other things, and be appropriate for using a variegated yarn with a couple of supporting solids. All these things make this shawl great vacation knitting!

If you want a really mindless knit, this pattern includes a separate pdf with row-by-row instructions which includes stitch counts for every row. You can simply check off each row as you knit it. The row numbers are consistent between the two formats, so you can switch from one to the other at any point.
