Sincerely, I could not be happier with the result. I am 100% satisfied and I am really glad that I persevered with the Rondeur pattern and tried it for the second time.
We were quite busy over here, in the Berries and Yarn household, with family visits, the lovely birthday celebration and also with Pip growing his first two molars. We have been lucky so far, his teething was almost unnoticeable, but the molars do seem to be giving him a hard time. All should be fine fairly soon though 🙂
He also started to reducing the amount and length of his day naps and the weather is so lovely we try to spend as much time outside as possible. I am enjoying every moment with him, especially considering that I will be back to work part-time in just over a month.
This all obviously means that I haven´t been speeding through Rondeur II as much as through his predecessor, however, we do seem to be getting somewhere.
As you may have noticed, I did not give up on Rondeur after the bamboo disappointment and cast on another attempt. This time I chose ice blue cotton, same yarn I used for Surry Hills. I managed to knit some on our little holiday, as it is a summer knit after all 🙂
At the moment I am almost reaching the point of waist shaping.
The cotton is of course pleasure to work with, so hopefully, this time it will turn out well. The yoke lace cable seems to suggest so 🙂
