Kanoko Pants

I don't know why, but I love to knit baby socks.  Whenever I have nothing to knit, they are the first thing that come to mind.  They are small and portable projects that I can knit on auto-pilot and there are so many different ways to knit them.  I however, seem to have an overflow of baby socks.  I definitely don't need more for the baby we are soon having, but I still love and will always knit them.  I will probably be like my wonderful grandma some day and have a huge bucket filled with hand-knit baby socks in all patterns and colours.  I don't think this is a bad thing.  I think it's the most wonderful thing ever.

After thoroughly thinking it through, I decided I should cast something new on.  I have had the Kanoko Baby Pants on my Que for quite a long time and have been meaning to knit up a pair.  I did just that and I think they turned out absolutely adorable !!!
Next time though, I think instead of the seed stitching around the top and booty area, I will do some fair isle.  I would love to make a more 'Scandinavian' looking pair in Red and white traditional fair isle.
I cannot wait to get these on our cute little girl !!!   


  1. Oh man, I would LOVE to see your cute little one in those babies!! Those pants are so darn CUTE!! Awwwww :) Motor, you make such beautiful things for your bebe. She's so lucky to have a Mommy (and Daddy like Robert) like you- and you're ever so lucky to have *SOON* a beautiful little girl to share your life with :) I know that I am looking forward to it! -- being both an observer and participator.

  2. Those are certainly adorable knit pants! It will be fun to see all the items you create for your baby girl. :)

  3. Cute little pants! I've never seen these before. Grandma and Grandpa are right here and leaving in the morning. We visited a yarn shop in Minneapolis and bought a couple skeins apiece that we are using for bracelets. We had a beautiful week of weather too. Do anything exciting today?

  4. eee!! those pants are just too cute for words!


Thank you ever so much for reading and taking the time to comment !!!
