Still in the sock swamp:-)

I'm still in the sock swamp, but at least I've knitted something else then socks to.
This time I have a cap for our grandchild to show you:

Pattern: None, just improvised
Yarn: Drops Fabel
Needles: 2.5mm

And from the leftovers from this cap and some other leftovers I also knitted her a pair of socks:

Pattern: Just Spring. I didn't knit the ruffles and picot bind off. And I also skipped the beads as I wanted the socks to be machine washable.
Yarn: as I said many leftovers
Needles: 2.5mm

And a pair of Socks for the February Challenge in the SKA group on Ravlery:

Pattern: Dreher socks
Yarn: Drops Fabel
Needles: 2mm

And last of all the challenge i the Sweduch group on Ravelry:

Pattern: Hat heel socks
Yarn: Many leftovers
Needles: 2.mm
Notions: Interesting way to knit socks as you start with the heel, but I don't think I will do it again.

And at last I've sewn in all threads on the Tindra gloves. So here they are:

Pattern: Tindra
Yarn: Sandnes Garn Strömpegarn plus some leftovers
Needles: 2mm

And I also have bought two new books:
Sock knitting, master class, a book I've been looking atfor a long time.The second book is Medieval-Inspired Knits, also a book I've been wanting to have for a long time.
