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!
