So, I am going back to my 4th pair of socks. I'm at the stage where I'm going to see what stitch pattern will look good. This yarn has so much going on that the stitches may get lost.

I'm learning all kinds of new things having this blog. Kind of flying by the seat of my pants. Here for your viewing pleasure is a fairly bad video. Forgot my camera could do this. My camera does not have sound. Next time I'll try with my phone.
Stanley is still learning. He loves to be brushed. His fur is thick like his fathers. Actually, if Pia didn't stay on his ass he would be better. I know he would really do better in a home by himself but he is here and the chances of someone I know just dying to adopt him is slim to none. As you can see his life is good despite Pia. Some days the boys stay in for 24 hours. Mostly they are in and out. Stanley prefers to stay out at all night but comes in to nap when I come home from work, goes out for the night when I go to bed. Zorro is always close. If I step out he is there so on weekends he is like a kid, in and out. I just wish he would learn to bark but he gets his message across when he wants out.
Since these were on sale I bet there are hundreds of us in the same colorway! I went down to size 1 for these. Same pattern as others K2P2 rib but this time took it to the toes. Knit up like a dream.

Here are the 4th of July socks finished.
And here they are on my BFF
Hate that little stitch hanging out.
We had a thunderstorm come through that took us from the pool side bar-b-que to inside. After eating hot dogs, hamburger and steak with sides of various yummy salads ending with cheesecake, we retired to the living room where BFF's GD put the socks on. BFF was having back problems. Funny to watch H struggle to get them on. Definitely not the same as putting socks on one of her dolls! So as we are sitting there in the AC my feet were getting cold! As I sat across the room and looked at my gift on BFF feet, I couldn't help think how ironic it was that she now had toasty toes and I was freezing. So despite it being the 4th of July those socks came in real handy. She did offer me socks (not hers) but I declined. I also couldn't help think of the Wizard of OZ while looking at the socks now that she was wearing them.
