this is a kimbop scarf!

knitting is my main hobby. where to get yarn in korea:
you can go to dongdaemun station, it is north on the blue line 4, exit 9. come up the stairs and there is a building to your right (the building next to the parking lot) go to the basement of this building, there are sewing and knitting supplies. the seoul snb google groups is the most active, if you post that youre going there, maybe someone will come to meet you/go with you? there is a facebook group for seoul snb but it is not very active. most people use ravelry or google groups. i think there is a page on the google gropu of other places to buy yarn. more info here:

google group 
and a group on ravelry

how to get the fbi check and apostille

  • fill out the form, go to the police station, and have them fingerprint you (it cost me $32 i think). Mail it off to the fbi and it should take 6-8 weeks to get it back.
  • scroll down and you'll see it's an $8 fee and it'll take about 10 days via mail service. download and fill out the form "DS-4194 Request for Authentications Service" and the cover letter/request form and mail it all off.
