Knitting and Reading....



My usual early morning routine. I get up, heat up some soy milk, start the fire, (which you wouldn't think you would really need here in Texas, but you do surprisingly), and take 15 minutes and do some knitting before I have to get things ready for work.  These are the Kanoko pants on Ravelry. They are for a boss who is having a baby this coming month. I love this pattern...super easy and way too cute. The yarn is something from my stash, something from Pattons I think.

I am currently reading Jo Nesbo's , " The Snowman", a Harry Hole novel. It is pretty good murder mystery so far.

Excited to see what everyone else has going on.

  1. Love the Kanko pants pattern. They are on my list to knit for my baby...hopefully. I'm currently knitting baby socks and they may consume my all of my knitting time until he arrives in April ;).
