Icecream Sock

This is my Icecream Sock. So called because it reminds me of Haagen Daz, which I miss! The yarn is selfpatterning from Sirdar. 70% wool 30% nylon.Weighs 34 grams.

I cast on long tail with 4mm. Knit 37 rows rib with 2.25mm and then knit 50 rows before heel shaping on 2.75. 54 rows after heel shaping before toe decreasing.

I am really pleased with this because I did it without a pattern. The math just suddenly 'clicked' in my head and now i can knit any gauge any size and get it right.

I have another on the needles using Rowan Felted Tweed, used double, that I have left over from a sweater. I shall try the short row heel with this one.
