THE PANTS ARE COMPLETE!!!


LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!, My pants are done. Aren't they wonderful? Aren't they great? Yes, yes they are soft, warm, comfy, and amazing all in one. I feel to use the words of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, "Knitting is a magic trick.... Look! Look at this! It's yarn! This...is what I have now...nothing like yarn! You can't wear YARN!" From her newest book Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off--The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting page 17. I love knitting. It is magic! And now I have some wonderful lounge wear to knit in.


This is not a complicated pattern and I would recommend it for any knitter that is looking for something beyond scarves but not as complicated as a sweater.

Well, I am off to go curl up with a new project and knit (make some magic). Isn't knitting wonderful?

Happy knitting!

Wow, they look fab. Thanks for you lovely comment about my fair isle socks on the Sock a month blog. I'm Norwegian and I lived in Colorado Springs for a year (although that's nearly 20 years ago now). Where in Colorado do you live ? If you don't mind me asking.

Hi! Thanks for the compliment on my pants. I live in Fruita which is just outside Grand Junction. We moved here from Puyallup Washington about 9 years ago. I still get very homesick for WA. I am 1/4 Norwegian, 1/4 Danish, and the rest is a mix. My grandfather was Norwegian and liked to tease me by speaking in Norwegian to me all the time as a child. I would love to go and visit there some day.

Wow, you're a real mix aren't you. When I was in Colorado Springs we went to some 'Sons of Norway' events and there were lots older people there who'd left Norway as children and they loved speaking to us and hearing about Norway. Not sure exactly were Grand Junction is, although I do recognise the name.

Grand Junction is on the west side of the Rocky Mountains about 30 miles east of the Utah border. The area is called Mountain desert because of the elevation and dry weather. We can get down to 10 below zero in the winter and 110 degrees (F) in the summer. Gives plenty of variety!

Holy freaking wow! Knit pants! I must try it! After I finish the dozens of other knitting projects in process (or else just abandon them...)

Tama said...

The other projects will always be there, try the pants! They are worth it!
