Success/Failure?

I’ve been stinking it up/productive here at home lately, so I’m not entirely sure what to say about what I’ve been up to.

I started knitting Isaac a sweater 3 days ago, and I thought I had the gauge down, and it turns out not so much. In other news, the body of PAUL’S new sweater is done, and I only have to finish the sleeves now. (It was huge on Isaac.) Serves me right for making up a knitting pattern on the fly I suppose, I should probably stick to having instructions from now on! I’ll have to take a picture when it’s done….

Attempt at making something take two: while Emmie and Isaac were at their first day of school yesterday I decided to sew Emmie a skirt, since I didn’t have her measurements I decided to use a child’s size 12 pattern piece for the waistband thinking it would fit her then, but it turns out it was HUGE on her and fits me instead! Luckily I made it long enough so that it will to go to my knees, but what the heck? Fail at making Emmie a skirt, win for me? (Not back door bragging Sarah! I am certainly NOT a child’s size 12)

We are in the middle of a Typhoon right now, so we are all hunkered down in the apartment watching the wind and rain whip by; school and work were canceled for the day, so everyone is here – maybe I should retry some sewing at the kids *actual* sizes while they are home! Korea is still proving to be quite the adventure!

    So stinking key-ute!!!! The sizing of patterns is a constant source of frustration to me! Not consistent at all. Or they are consistently inconsistent.

    This skirt is sooooo cute, where did you get the fabric (I would love to get my hands on some)? This would make such a cute Easter outfit (is it too soon to think about Spring?)

      Unfortunately I got it at Dongdaemun here in Korea, so I am not sure how easily you could get some in the states! I definitely don’t think it’s too soon to think about Spring! I would like to skip straight from Fall to Spring in fact!
