Plan B

Robert B. Parker, author of the Spenser and Jesse Stone detective novels, writes somewhere that you should always have a Plan B.

Plan B:
Dotted Rays by Stephen West.

Plan A:  Pueblo Stole.  This is as far as I got before it dawned on me two years later that it was destined to remain a UFO:

That's all I could knit, maybe a third of the stole.

There will be a Plan B version 2. Could be another year.  But the pressure is off.  Good yarn put to good use, you know?
