Canon Lens on K1000 slr?

Would like to mount my Canon DSLR kit lenses from my Canon T2I. I have the two standard kit lenses 55-75, 75-250.

I know I'd have to operate the focus manually but would like to get it on there to take pics. Any adapters out there you know of? Would the image be cropped or smaller than 35mm?

Nope. Wrong way, k-mount> EOS crop body works.

EOS lenses can't be adapted, unfortunately. But manual Pentax lenses aren't expensive, so I'd just go for a 50mm or a cheap film era zoom for your K1000.
