Finally finished: Julia. Am I happy with her? I am not sure yet …
I am relieved to have her finished because it took me endless weeks to reach this goal. Long sleeves + tiny needles are kind of hell and knitting three or four projects at the same time did not help 😉 But I wanted Julia and for the last three days I made an effort to complete the second sleeve.
I do love the yarn which is RYC Cashcotton 4 ply – it is soft and light and the colour is great – don’t judge by the pictures! The colour is called seaspray and is a pale greyish seagreen. Very vintage looking.
The pattern was easy to follow and to memorize, the fitting is perfect. I only went one needle size down and choose the smallest size due to my loose tension. Although I made it some three centimeters longer than given in the pattern, I still think, Julia could be a bit longer on me. I begin to think that I am not that short waisted as it looks – my legs are pretty long with 1,12 m, so I might have been mislead when looking in the mirror.
That is the next point – I do not like those pictures and that makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable about my relationship with Julia. My hair is too short and too plain this time and my mood today is generally bad – poor Julia! It is not her fault 😉
All in all, it was nice to knit but I won’t knit anything long-sleeved for some time.
