Today is 04/04/04, no matter if you notate it American or rest-of-the-world/military style. I just LOVE number patterns. Not as much as I like color, but I find it very exciting to be living on 04/04/04. The number four sometimes signifies solidity, stableness (squares and rectangles have 4 sides and cubes, which are related, are very stable… hard to tip over). I could use a touch of stability myself, these days.

I also watch the numbers on my car’s odometer, do you do that as well? I remember where my old car, Martha G., was when it hit 234,567. I had that car for 14 years and about a quarter-million miles. I had many fun odometer moments with that car.

Oh… my brother, Eric, had his 17th birthday on 07/07/77. We thought that was cool, too!

Anyone else have any number stories?

I wonder… how could I knit in a way to commemorate this date? Knit a rib in K4, p4, k20, p04? Might look strange, could look really good, actually. What else? I don’t really feel like actually creating the arabic number shapes in colorwork. I wonder what symbolic way I can mark the date in my knitting, either socknitting or something else that doesn’t take a lot of time to put together. Hmmm… ideas, anyone?

    I have one number story – it dates me though… My high school commencement was 6/7/89…

    Well, you could use binary (0’s as Purl and 1’s as Knit) – 040404 converts to:

    00110000 00110100 00110000 00110100 00110000 00110100
