Thank you so much for all the super nice comments!
was it difficult ?
Not at all. The knitting was simple and straight forward. I also really liked the armhole shaping- really clever and simple. The finishing may have been the most tedious and tricky part. I did have to do a couple rows of sc crochet around the neckline.
How long did it take you ?
This didn't take too long to knit. I think the front and back pieces took about 4 days each of dedicated knitting, while the sleeves may have taken about 2 hours each. All in all, 2 weeks of knitting, 2 weeks to find the right buttons, so about a month from start to finish. Also, I used a larger needle size for the ribbed skirt section to make that part go by a little faster.
