CSM proto sock!

The Imperia works like a dream - ribbing as soon as the dial is on! Very chuffed with it.
Was trying out different tensions. The sock "proper" starts at a selvedge (looks like a rib crossways) at MT/RT 5/3. The grey stripe was an accident (was unpicking a previous attempt). Sock is stocking stitch base from heel onwards. Ran out of yarn (this is leftover Trekking handpainted).
Need to make myself a cast-on bonnet, because the grey yarn is getting low now. Also need to work out how many rows for a size 7 foot. And practice heels - it's a little holey at the corner.
