My first Sweater..ish and the Best Thanksgiving Pageant Ever

IMG_0435
I don't know if you would call this a sweater or really what you would call it but I knitted it and I am done and so I am wearing it everyday until I absolutely have to wash it (because we know I have no idea how to wash handmade things even though I handmake things...).
After church, a girl came up to me at target and said "Where did you get your-" and I almost died in her arms. But, then she said "skirt" and by then I couldn't remember.  sigh. It is pretty bulky.
 I sort of went by this pattern on lion brand, but it was different measurements. (As I didn't really measure at all, except by constantly pulling it across my body to see if it would look like it would fit,  and then I would have to go back and count my stitches every time I had to go by the pattern rules).  I am going to go back through and try and make it not curl up on the neck and the bottom.  Do any of you guys know how to do that?  Maybe pick up some stitches and then use smaller needles to pull it tighter?  I know.  I you're amazed. I know that "picking up stitches" is a real phrase.  I can't help how cool I am.
On Friday the twins had their Thanksgiving Program and Feast, and it is safe to say it was one of the best things that I have ever seen in my life.  I know I am biased, but her little arms coming up in the huge vest is like the funniest thing. And Ben was just stone cold.  Hilarious.  I couldn't stop laughing/crying.  I can't believe that they got them to wear vests and Indian feathers...I can't even get them in clothes most of the time.

Hope you guys had a great weekend!
