SOS #8 done and What Happens If?

71207aI used to have quite a stash of various Regia cotton blend sock yarn. I have a few pairs and like them, but I think they're perfect for my relatives that live in warmer areas. So, this pair is not for me. The pattern is Anastasia. I've knit this pattern last fall and liked it. I can see myself doing this pattern a few more times. It's easy to do, easy to memorize, and it keeps your attention enough to not be boring. I did try to match up the stripes on these socks since I was knitting these one at a time. for the most part, I was successful. I love how the diagonals cut through the stripes.

Yarn: Regia Cotton Surf - 5410
Needles: size 0 (2mm) Knit Picks Classic Circular
Method: magic loop, one at a time, toe up with a Turkish cast-on
Pattern: Anastasia Socks
Start: July 10, 2007
Finish: July 12, 2007

My 3.5 year old son is into questions. Many questions...all day long. What happens if I don't have eyes? (You wouldn't be able to see.) What happens if the deer come into the house? (They don't like coming inside and probably wouldn't.) What happens if we have a playground in the bathroom? (We wouldn't have room for us in here.) What happens if I was just like E? (Then I wouldn't have a cute little boy.) I remember E going through this stage, but it's killing me. ;-) I try to answer them, but it does get tiring. So all through knitting, cooking, and general things we do everyday, I hear those questions. Sometimes they just baffle me and I have to ask him to repeat them.

If I manage to think about something besides all of those questions, I'll figure out what I'll knit next. ;-)

No. 8! Woohoo! I like the diagonal across the stripes as well. Nice touch.

I once heard my husband's brother say, "I dunno, what do you think?" when his 3yo was asking lots of questions. It was really entertaining to hear him try to work out his own answers.
