I'm waiting for any mistakes in 'Queen Anne's Lace' to display themselves, preparing for several family functions;trying to write up the various variations for Fibonaccci Eyelets, catch up with the spawning blankets and wedding shawls and resist the temptation to cast on about a gazillion projects...
So - for "mindless knitting" - I'm working on Desert Sun from GoddessKnits.
Now, I know it doesn't look mindless, but the repeats are not long, very logical and very easy to "read" against your finished stitches - and each one is done 24 times.... the next three rows are all "knit 22, purl 2" - and the purls are verticallly aligned, so it really is the next best thing to mindless garter.
I started this last summmer, and currently have under 40 rows and the edge to knit. My version is being worked on US 8 needles in a heathered bayberry 2/8 Jagger Spun Maine Line wool.
addendum:6/7 - Under 35 rows left (plus edge)
