Nornir, sm5-2 wip

I have enough yarn now, found a partial ball and scraps of the same yarn in my stash although I'll have to overdye those bits after the socks are finished.

SM5-2 sock 5 info & test email rec'd

- overdyeing frogged Pomatomus sock yarn in preparation for SM5-2, (Sock Madness Forever Ravelry group,) sock #5, (is it teaser #1?? brioche??)

... and I'm still!!!

One ball of yarn had a knot/cut in it already, now the other one has a cut, too, that I made when trying to rewind these while watching, "The Girl Who Play With Fire," (not a good idea to do both at the same time as the movie is in Swedish with English subtitles!)

Lillehammer FG's finished

A modified version of Lillehammer mittens, see heartlandknits mittens;

twined knit over 72 sts,
heavy fingering weight yarn,
2.0 mm & 2.25 mm circular needles,

These are probably a ladies M/L or a mens S, too big for me.
