happy yarn along day! this definitely is one of my favourite link ups, so much knitting and reading inspiration, i love it!
i've cast on for the Kanoko Pants, although i will most probably just use the number of stitches for orientation, as i'd like it plain, without the seed stitching. i might make them slightly flared with a contrasting colour in garter stitch at the bottom, i'll see as i go. the yarn is the washable (yay!) Malabrigo Rios, the one i had started a scarf for my hubby with and then frogged :(( the mr. has no problems waiting for his scarf so another baby project it is!
i ordered Steady Days by Jamie C. Martin a few days ago. we're heading to the seaside for a few days and this one will join my bag with books i'd like to read (along with writing assignments to be finished and knitting, of course!) it's a short little book, but i am hoping for some inspiration as to the structure of our days. i've been feeling a little overwhelmed lately, with my expectations as to mothering my little one, with another one on the way, the housework, my secular job and writing deadlines, i constantly have the feeling something (if not several aspects) misses out and often wonder at the end of the day where the time is gone, as it mostly seems i got nothing done. my hope is that having more organized days/weeks will be helpful for everybody. if any of you has any suggestions or reading recommendations in this regard, please share in the comments!
i'm joining ginny's yarn along. what are you knitting and reading?
