So this is the new sweater I’m starting. I’m making it for Justin (my darker half). I took some measurements and I’m readjusting and customizing the pattern for him. The original pattern would have put the chest 3″ too big and the length 8″ too long….so I’m fixing it. I don’t really like standardized clothing anyway.
I’ve reworked the back and front of the pattern for him, then I’ll negotiate the sleeves once I get to them. I might sew it up a little high because I’m starting to think a 12″ opening for sleeves is a little silly. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes.
I’m about 4″ into the back piece right now. I’ll post updates as I work through it!
Update on us:
We are looking forward to moving in about a month or so. We already have our new apartment secured and paid for! I’ve already started going through our stuff to see what can be thrown out and what can be packed away early and so on. I’ve also got to attempt to make this apartment seem like we haven’t lived in it. It was a disaster to begin with, so it’s gonna be hard work. That’s all for now, but I’ll keep updating on the moving process.
As always, may the odds be ever in your favor!
